The Museum of Work & Culture invites the public to an upcoming event that will help curate the 2019 Flickers’ Rhode Island International Film Festival.
Ciné Québec, an evening of Québecois films in celebration of the month of Francophonie, takes place Thursday, March 7, at the MoWC. The evening will begin at 6 pm with a wine and cheese reception in the MoWC gallery.
At 7 pm, attendees will watch and vote on new and exciting short films from Québec currently under consideration by RIIFF. The film that wins the most votes will gain automatic competition entry to the festival.
Ciné Québec will conclude with a screening of the feature-length film Hochelaga: Terre des âmes.
The latest film from internationally acclaimed director François Girard, Hochelaga: Land of Souls is a mesmerizing time travel drama spanning eight centuries of layered indigenous, colonial, and contemporary histories. When a sinkhole suddenly opens up on the field of a downtown Montreal football stadium during a game, the city's past and present begin to intersect.
Tickets are $15 and may be reserved by calling (401) 769-9675 or purchased at shopmowc.com.
This event is made possible by the Délegation of Québec in Boston.
