2017 WORLD FILM FESTIVAL OF MONTREAL-
By Bernard Bujold –
The official opening of the 2017 World Film Festival has been sober but a success!
The founding president Serge Losique presented to the spectators his vision of the cinema and of his Festival and if there is one thing to watch is the use of the Internet to reach the public. The concept of the remote jury by the use of VIMEO is particularly innovative.
It will be necessary to see the continuation but the Internet is definitely at the center of the plans for the future of the FFM.
If Quebecor and Pierre-Karl Péladeau gave Serge Losique a lucky hand in becoming the owner-tenant of the Imperial Cinema, it is necessary to attribute the survival of the World Film Festival to its founder Serge Losique. He has succeeded in bringing together an efficient and determined team of volunteers, and even if the programming does not have the scale of the previous years, it remains interesting and above all of high quality.
The opening film: “Anna Karenina: Vronski’s Story” is definitely an artistic work. In this film we find magnificent images as much of Imperial Russia as magnificent horse racing scenes and exceptional music especially during the sequence of the Ball.
In conclusion: The Montreal World Film Festival is still alive and Serge Losique still has plenty of development projects for the future.
