MONTREAL STOP MOTION FESTIVAL 2012

Fall is appropriately film festival season in Montreal and elsewhere in Canada, but, true to form, Montreal adds its own twist to the usual film fest fare: the Montreal Stop Motion Film Festival, October 19-21, welcomes kids and adults alike to revel in the meticulous art of stop-motion animation.

THINGS TO DO IN MONTREAL: SEPTEMBER 14-20

Montreal is slowly starting to move indoors as summer fades away – things to do this week straddle the open-air events Montreal is famous for and the many sheltered options necessitated by the winter season. See films, dance and music shows in parks and in theatres, tour Tall Ships, meet Star Trek royalty, go to the Opera, or dance the night away…

THINGS TO DO IN MONTREAL: AUGUST 31-SEPTEMBER 6

It’s Labour Day long weekend and public life is in the spotlight this first week of September: live music, from indie-rock to hip hop, at Olympic Park and around town; film from around the world and from the bike world; fashion shows; outdoor art and performances; a food-and-shopping-filled street party – and it’s Burger Week too!

5 FILMS TO CATCH AT THE MONTREAL WORLD FILM FEST

There was a time when the Montreal World Film Festival was bigger than any other other film festival in Canada, when the stars wore out the red carpets here at Place des Arts and the Cinema Imperial. But in recent years, our MWFF has distinguished itself as the place for young filmmakers to introduce their work to a wider audience, and for films from around the planet to strut their stuff on the world stage…

THINGS TO DO IN MONTREAL IN MARCH

March in Montreal means spring is coming, never mind some snow: nothing can stop us from outdoor adventures, making spring break a whole lot of family fun, and putting on not one but two film festivals this month along with dance, theatre and music shows…

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…

30 YEARS OF RENDEZ-VOUS DU CINEMA QUEBECOIS

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.

THINGS TO DO IN MONTREAL: November 11-17

Montreal puts its own in the spotlight this week: musicians, filmmakers, actors, dancers, all kinds of the assorted amazing talent this town seems to inspire on a daily basis. At the same time, locals merge with international stars at two film festivals, a new Opera Montreal production of Rusalka, a music and arts festival focused on the Arab world, and more. With this wide a scope, there’s no shortage of entertainment…

THINGS TO DO IN MONTREAL: NOVEMBER 4-10

The encroaching winter hasn’t made an impact on the bustle of Montreal’s entertainment and arts scene– no fewer than three film festivals, a city-wide celebration of French music, brand new art that references masterful classics in accessible ways, classical and traditional music of the highest calibre from around the world, sweet nights at the theatre, experiments in dance and electronic arts, and indie-rock and folk to warm the heart…

THINGS TO DO IN MONTREAL: OCTOBER 28 TO NOVEMBER 3

At the centre of the week ahead is Montreal’s favourite holiday: Halloween! Some have futilely argued with me that Halloween isn’t actually a holiday; they are wrong. Just like any other holiday worth its salt, Halloween has traditional costumes (witches, the living dead, sexy kitties), special dishes (candy), and time-honoured rituals (treat or treating, dance parties, making out with masked strangers). And this week, Halloween is celebrated from Friday night to Monday night! And in between, catch some live music, theatre, dance, a new movie and life-altering art…
