Film Festival : Festival de cinéma de la Ville de Québec – Opening film announcement

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.


  1. Wow, knowing how protective the Québécois can be about language, Parkland must be a very good film indeed.

    1. I hope it is because they might receive a lot of criticizing... Thanks for passing by Bonjour Tristesse.

    2. Well, prepare for some controversy. Parkland just premiered in Venice and from what I've read so far the English press was not very impressed.

    3. It might jazz it up and get a little exposure! I'm even more intrigued by this movie right now!
