Our brand new talk show La Buvette du FCVQ will be pre-recorded in Le Diamant in Quebec City and will be broadcast every evening from 6:30 p.m. In this relaxed and pop moment, our host Marième Ndiaye receives artists and craftmakers that are part of our 2020 program.
Tonight, Marième welcomes Pascal Plante, Nadia, Butterfly's director and Katerine Savard, who plays the main role of Nadia Beaudry in the film and also a high-level swimmer in real life! A Buvette with a local flavor, where we will talk about their journey from Quebec, and of this crazy year, between a selection at Cannes 2020 for the film and the 2021 report of the Tokyo Olympics.
In addition, the Pianorama, acclaimed last year on the Place d'Youville, is back in the Buvette! The masterful Alexandre Racine improvises on old films, different each evening, to offer us a musical interlude.
