Visions Ouest Productions (VOP) officially goes live on February 4 at 4:00 p.m. with the presentation of the 27th edition of the Rendez-vous du cinéma québécois et francophone.
Like many organizations, this is a great first for VOP, filled with challenges but also opportunities. With a brand new geolocation, this will be an opportunity to make all Rendez-vous programming accessible to new audiences throughout BC, Alberta and the Yukon. More than half of the programming will also be available online across Canada.
More than 60 films from the national and international Francophonie will be shown between February 4 and February 14, 2021, including nearly 40 feature and medium-length films, some Premieres: DE GAULLE by Gabriel Le Bomin presented from February 4 to 11, 2021, MISS by Rubens Alves presented from February 5 to 12, 2021 and JOSEP by Aurel, a Franco-Hispano-Belgian animated film showing from February 6 to 13 2021. The latter has just won the 2021 Lumières Awards for best animated film and best music (Silvia Pérez Gruz) at the International Press Lumières ceremony.
This year, Acadia is in the spotlight with, as leader, the filmmaker Phil Comeau who has just received the Léger-Comeau medal awarded by the Société nationale de l'Acadie, an honor that reflects on all his people! His films VAGUE D’ACADIE and BELLE-ÎLE EN ACADIE, not to mention ZACHARIE RICHARD TOUJOURS BATAILLEUR, will screen at the 27th RVCQF.
