Twelve fiction feature films, two documentaries, nine short films, a literary workshop and a music lesson are just a few of the items on the menu at Cinéma du Québec à Paris, which was initiated by the Société de développement des entreprises culturelles (SODEC) with a number of partners, including the Québec Government Office in Paris.
The 16th edition returns to the Forum des images in Paris November 6 to 11, with Carole Laure as the honorary chair. The film professionals will also be invited to participate in the 9th Francophone Co-production Meetings, which are aimed at stimulating co-productions of French-language fiction feature films by producers and partners.
“We are delighted to see our films becoming increasingly popular with the French public. In 2012, seven Québec films were released in the French market compared to only two in 2011,” said SODEC President and CEO François Macerola.
Certain films in the 2012 selection will also be shown at Cinéma du Québec à Cannes (November 2 to 5) and in London (November 2 to 4).
The fiction feature films Rebelle by Kim Nguyen and Camion by Rafaël Ouellet will respectively open and close this week of film. French film-lovers will also be able to discover:
