What a year! We are absolutely thrilled to present you this year’s QCFF, an edition adorned with an array of cinematic novelties and exciting experiences that go far beyond the movie theatre! These initiatives, most of which stem from highly anticipated projects that are near and dear to our hearts, are sure to add that little je-ne-sais-quoi to the festival experience you’ve come to know and love over the years. 

Among these, notable mentions are our VR hub at Place d’Youville, our constantly-evolving professional events, and the numerous exhibits presented in collaboration with Méduse, la Maison pour la Danse, la Maison de la Littérature, the National Assembly of Quebec, l’ENAP (we’re finally in Lower Town, ya!), and the long-awaited unveiling of the new Le Diamant.

THANK YOU to our honorary presidents and their commitment to our growth, to our remarquable cinephile for her helpful programming job, to our board of directors, our hundreds of new and long-time collaborators, partners and precious volunteers, who work relentlessly to support an event that stands out in the Québec cultural landscape. You make us very proud!

Wishing you a great festival dear cinephiles, we can’t wait to talk film with you!
