Since its founding in 1971 by local cineastes Dimitri Eipidès and Claude Chamberlan, the Festival du nouveau cinéma (New Cinema Festival) has brought the latest and greatest in film, video and noteworthy television to Montréal audiences. An annual fall feast for film lovers, the FNC brings together new works by some of the world’s most celebrated cinema artists alongside new films from Canada and Québec.
A high point of the program, the FNC presents a series of awards including the Louve d’Or prize, awarded to the best film of the year. Since 2019, the International Critics Prize – as selected by the International Federation of Film Critics (FIPRESCI) – is presented to the best first feature screened at the FNC, a prestigious prize also awarded at the Venice, Berlin, Cannes and Toronto film festivals.
More than just a series of screenings, the FNC presents the four day FNC Forum, an industry networking and educational event, as well as FNC Explore, spotlighting new technologies and innovations. Dedicated to the advancement of visual and filmic technologies, the FNC truly lives up to its name with focus on the new.
