International Festival of Films on Art (FIFA)

March 15, 2017 — The International Festival of Films on Art (known by its French acronym FIFA) celebrates its 35th anniversary in 2017. The world’s biggest art film festival, both in reputation and scale, looks at all forms of art, in all cultures: visual and media arts, circus and theatre, literature and comic art, dance, music, fashion, and more.

The festival proper occurs over ten days in March in several venues in downtown Montréal, including institutions such as the Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA), the PHI Centre, the McCord Museum, Place des Arts’ Cinquième Salle, the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, and the Grande Bibliothèque (BAnQ).

FIFA also promotes dialogue with round tables, openings, performances, and installations, not to mention the International Market of Film on Art (MIFA), an array of events and services for film professionals and culture promoters from around the world.

Finally, each year, a series of films, including the award winners, are sent on a world tour. The award winners are also presented in autumn at the Art Film Matinees at the Montréal Museum of Fine Arts.
