The founder of the World Film Festival of Montreal, Serge Losique, could be called the “immortal warrior”…
The character may be 83 years old but he has lost none of his determination and he intends to stay up until the end, even if he were to lose the war. But if the programming of the WFF 2014 is an decisive element, Serge Losique is heading for a second win after the first 2005 victory that he had won despite significant financial damage.
A total of 350 feature films from 74 countries are on schedule for the WFF 2014, films that mainly highlight the various ailments and conflicts taking place around the world, almost as if the organizers of the FFM were influenced in their choice of films by their own survival situation.
The event will run from August 21 to September 1, 2014.
