With the third edition of the Festival de cinéma de la Ville de Québec coming September 19th to the 29th, it was recently released that the opening film this year will be Peter Landesman’s Parkland starring Paul Giamatti, Zac Efron, Billy Bob Thornton and Jacki Weaver.
It is the first time that a non-Quebecois film is the opening title. The programming director stated that Parkland is such a strong film that it needed to be the headline.
Amongst the other films coming are : Catherine Martin’s Une jeune fille, David La Haie’s J’espère que tu vas bien 2, Mathieu Roy’s L’autre maison for the known Quebecois titles so far and Don Jon starring Joseph-Gordon Levitt and Scarlett Johansson has been announced
More updates coming with the release of the entire program on the 3rd day of September.
