MOVIES CAN AND DO SHAPE OUR LIVES...

With thousands of participants every year, Cinéfranco has become a major Francophone institution in the Toronto audiovisual landscape!

Films are prophetic, they say: how many times have we seen a sci-fi movie dealing with horrific pandemic and its disastrous effects?

Today, we are in Toronto no longer watching a film about a deadly spreading virus but experiencing a real science fiction scenario.

 

On behalf of Cinéfranco, I would like to emphasize the fact that the health and safety of our precious audiences and our volunteers are at the heart of our concerns. 

Let’s follow the protection and safety measures to eliminate the COVID-19 virus. We will defeat it to better enjoy and, at later dates, make of these Franco-Moroccan and Quebec films the ultimate film experiences!

Cinéfranco is working on the preparation of a special program for the month of November with the collaboration of Hot Docs!

EXCITING NEWS

TV5 presents Tonie Marshall's Number One
from August 9 to August 16 in partnership with CINÉFRANCO

 

Visit the TV5 website to watch Number One by Tonie Marshall with Emmanuelle Devos, Suzanne Clément, Richard Berry, Sami Frey, Benjamin Biolay, Francine Bergé and John Lynch.

 

If you like your drama and comedy served stone cold and unashamedly smart, you will like Number One very much indeed. (Graeme Tuckett, Stuff.coz.nz)

 

The movie will be broadcast on TV5 at 1 p.m. on Sunday, August 9, and then available on TV5’s website.

 

Emmanuelle Blachey is a brilliant and determined engineer who has risen up through the ranks of her company, a major French energy firm, until sitting on the board of directors. One day, a network of powerful women offer to help her become the head of a CAC 40 firm. She would be the first woman to hold such a position. But in the spheres still largely dominated by men, professional and personal obstacles increase. The conquest seemed thrilling but turns out to be a war.

This broadcast will be followed by a debate in French organized by CINÉFRANCO
on Wednesday, August 12 at 7 p.m. when you have the floor!

 

We invited a panel of our passionate cinephiles to be in the panel.


You can register for this free webinar and ask questions and provide comments before August 11 by sending us an e-mail at info@cinefranco.com, or during the webinar.

 

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

Sur la corde raide (Tightrope)

 

A film by Claude Guilmain

Sur la corde raide (Tightrope) looks back at the reasons for Canada's refusal to intervene in Iraq in 2003 alongside the United States. The film highlights the political tug-of-war that went on behind the scenes with a southern neighbour that has a history of interventionism on the international stage to serve its economic and geostrategic interests. This historic decision could have had far-reaching consequences for Canada, and many actors and analysts at the time and in the film show the terrible price to be paid when diplomacy fails to resolve conflicts around the world.
