The Festival du Nouveau Cinéma is turning 35

The Festival du Nouveau Cinéma is turning 35
New awards, new programmers and a joint celebration

From October 18 to 28, 2006, the Festival du Nouveau Cinéma will celebrate its 35th anniversary. The FNC, Canada’s oldest international film festival, has always been committed to constant renewal; in keeping with that tradition, it is today announcing the creation of new awards and the arrival of new programmers. From now to June 15, filmmakers and new media artists are invited to submit their works via

New awards in the International Selection competitive section

In order to help boost the profile and positioning of short films, the FNC will include 20 such works in its competitive section. There will also be an acting award for the best actor or actress in a film from the International Selection. In all, eight awards will recognize the best films in the festival:

Louves – Feature and short (best first, second or third work)

Louve – Acting

Audience Award

Best Screenplay

Prix de l’Association québécoise des critiques de cinéma (AQCC) (Quebec film critics’ award for best first film)

The Main Award (best work produced in Montreal, programmed in any section)

Temps Zéro Award (best work in that section)

Awards will be presented on Thursday, October 26. For the final two days of the festival, the FNC will schedule encore screenings of some of the best films from the 2006 edition.

New programmers

Festival founder and Programming Director Claude Chamberlan has brought several new faces to the programming team. The FNC is proud to welcome Madeleine Molyneaux, the acclaimed New York-based producer, who will program American independent films; Hugo Guerreiro, an artist and Art and Technology specialist, who will select new media works; and Hiromi Aihara, who will work on the Temps Zéro section’s Asian programming from her base in Tokyo.

Co-founder Dimitri Eipides (fiction and documentary), Philippe Gajan (short films and new media), Julien Fonfrède (Temps Zéro), Don Lobel (contemporary cinema), Daniel Canty (short films and new media) and programming coordinator Nicolas Girard Deltruc will all return to contribute their expertise and artistic vision to the FNC.

Double anniversary

In addition to the FNC’s 35th, this year also marks the 25th anniversary of the Festival du cinéma international en Abitibi-Témiscamingue. The two festivals will join forces to celebrate their milestone editions, resulting in a memorable, surprise-filled event. A not-to-be-missed “double header” on the Quebec cultural scene!
