AMERASIA FILM FEST CELEBRATES ASIAN CINEMA

Around here, we like to call the Amérasia Film Festival the little festival that can, even if it’s not Cannes. From blockbusters to animation, there’s a lot of wonderful Asian cinema on offer over the next couple of weekends…

With over 300 films, including 86 premieres, the 30th edition of the Rendez-vous du cinéma québécois, February 15–26, is a crash course in the prolific, inventive state of Quebec film today. Among all the movie-going, the festival also brings directors, actors, writers and other film-industry names together for public talks, cocktail events, outdoor activities and, of course, parties…

Montréal en Lumière, also known as the High Lights Festival, February 16–26, and its all-night cultural event/party Nuit Blanche, February 25, have done the impossible and made February a month to actually look forward to.

THINGS TO DO IN MONTREAL IN FEBRUARY

In Canada, February is traditionally a month spent indoors at home (whether you’ve got a hot Valentine or not). But Montreal don’t play like that anymore: winter festival Montréal en Lumière makes the month bright, along with the festivities of Black History Month and an abundance of art shows, dance and theatre performances, winter outdoor activities, and, as ever, music…

MONTREAL 2012 EVENTS CALENDAR

In the poetic words of the great Britney Spears: “Keep on dancing ’till the world ends.” This is exactly what Montreal will be doing for 2012. Though we’re only one month in, the 2012 cultural calendar is already filling up fast…

SOLID COLD: IGLOOFEST SHAKES OFF WINTER

Sometimes I can’t believe that Montreal’s massive outdoor electronic music fest and dance party Igloofest took until 2007 to get off the frozen ground – I mean, it’s just so very Montreal. Since the dawn of time, Montrealers have always been good at finding ways to party, sanctioned or not, during the darkest and deepest of winters…

BEER AND BELGIUM ON THE HIGH LIGHTS FESTIVAL’S MENU

Every February, Montreal’s bellies look forward to the Gastronomical aspects of the midwinter High Lights festival, also known as Montreal en Lumiere. This is the 11th edition and for the last 10 years the festival has treated us to some of the finest tables this city has ever known—and best of all, there are events for every budget, from chef-hosted, multi-course tasting menus to culinary walking tours of various Montreal neighbourhoods and workshops at Jean-Talon market…

MONTREAL BUZZ 2011: A YEAR IN REVIEW

Over the course of 2011, we produced a series of videos in an attempt to document all the amazing things that were happening in Montreal. From festivals to food to gay montreal, from things to see to things to do, we were there. Check out all of the videos on Tourisme Montreal’s Youtube channel. As editor of this blog, I’d like to take a moment to thank our totally boss bloggers and our amazing cameraman Guillaume Langlois, who shot and edited all of these videos. See you all in 2012!

M FOR MONTREAL 2011

Another great M for Montreal has just wrapped up and we got to the opportunity to see everyone from up-and-comers like Karim Ouellet to locals-done-great like Karkwa. M for MTL continues to be both a way for local bands to gain international exposure and for audiences to see a million (my estimate) bands in a couple days. Though 2011 still has plenty of great concerts on the way, our next big music fest here in Montreal is January’s Igloofest. See you there.
