Following major celebrations last year for the festival's 20th anniversary, the 2015 Cinémania Film Festival will open its doors in Montreal from November 5 through 11, once again throwing the spotlight on French cinema.
Each year in November, around fifty French films are showcased at Cinemania in North American premieres (for Canada or Quebec), screened with English subtitles. The 2015 edition of the festival promises to be a great success, with this event now standing out as the biggest festival in Canada dedicated to French films.
Around a dozen French artists will make the trip to Montreal for the event, including the guest of honor Françoise Fabian, who will present My Night at Maud's by Éric Rohmer, as well as the documentary La Fabian, which Dominique Besnehard (also a guest at the festival) has dedicated to her, and an episode from the series Dix Pour Cent, in which she starred.
Other guests include Anaïs Demoustier, Jérémie Elkaïm, Philippe Le Guay, Julie Gayet, Mathieu Busson, Antonythasan Jesuthasan, Guillaume & Stéphane Malandrin, and Ariane Ascaride & Syrus Shahidi for Don't Tell Me the Boy Was Mad.
Isabelle Giordano, executive director of Unifrance, will also be in attendance.
