Montreal World Film Festival

Canada
All genres

A FIAPF accredited film festival, the Montreal World Film Festival is one of Canada’s oldest. Its goal is to encourage cultural diversity and understanding between nations, and so has a large international program.
Its World Competition section is open to World and International Premiere films and its First Films World Competition (director’s first fiction feature-length film) gives priority to world premieres.
Other competitive sections include Documentaries of the World and Student Films. Non-competitive sections are World Greats, Focus on World Cinema, Tributes and Cinema Under the Stars.
The festival hosts an accompanying market with film buyers from around the world.


ATTENDEE TIPS

“The Montreal audience seemed like a very aware and ‘cinema-literate’ audience. It was an inspiring screening, showing that the film had the potential to be popular with an audience.”
