- Advertisement -

Montreal’s Festival du nouveau cinéma has announced their line up for the films competing for the Louve d’Or, a prize of $15 000 awarded to the best film. This marks the festivals 40th year and once again the line up is stellar. If you are not familiar with the festival than now is the time to do so. I honestly think it is the best film festival I have ever been to. While Fantasia may be the most fun, the FNC not only picks the best of Venice, Cannes and TIFF, but they don’t focus on red carpets, celebrities, nor do they overcharge for tickets. Its classy, laid back and more importantly, all about the movies. Here is the first wave of films announced.
