More than anything, the Festival du nouveau cinéma is about a spirit, the spirit of good company, revelry and fun. Every edition is a chance to get together and celebrate our shared passion for film around each new lineup. The eleven-day Festival is designed as a space devoted to discussions, meetings and sharing, where film fans can come together with artists and professionals to exchange ideas in an informal setting. Film isn't something to be kept cloistered in an ivory tower. At the Festival du nouveau cinéma, we believe there's nothing more important than keeping the flame alive, together.
