My last day in Moncton was really sweet. I had stimulating conversations with other filmmakers from Montréal and Paris, ate lobster and squeezed in a vintage shopping trip.
At night it was finally time for Raymond's projection, the reason for my trip in the first place. It was shown in a category called ''Osez les courts'' (means ''Dare Shorts'') and the other movies in the category were really good as well. My favorites were Sophie Farkas-Bolla's Chroniques de l'autre and Keren Marciano's Mémoire d'une jeune fille dérangée (see trailer below). There was a big line up to get in the theater which got us excited.
We really wanted to see Pierre Ferrière's Toute ma vie and had asked Marie-Renée to push back the viewing by six minutes so everybody could see both. It was great! Once again I was up front, presenting the movie.
Next up: Festival du cinéma international en Abitibi-Témiscamingue at the end of October!
