A lively, bold, popular, innovative event! For 50 years, the FNC has been making national and international auteur cinema accessible, treating audiences to works of diversity and originality by emerging and major filmmakers.

It is still time to buy your tickets. We have a variety of passports, bundles and individual tickets for specific movie screenings.

Special Presentation of Dune
by Denis Villeneuve

As the 50th edition takes off today, the FNC is very happy to announce a special presentation of DUNE by Denis Villeneuve during its very last screening on Sunday, October 17 at the Imperial Cinema at 8 PM. Based on Frank Herbert’s novel, Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures’ DUNE is one of the most anticipated films of the year and stars Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, Zendaya, with Jason Momoa and Javier Bardem, among others. As a regular of FNC, the Academy Award-nominated French Canadian filmmaker Denis Villeneuve previously opened the festival back in 2017 with a presentation of Blade Runner 2049. Tickets for the screening will go on sale on Wednesday, October 6 at noon on the official FNC website.

A message from our partner Riverbend

We are pleased to announce the official beer of the FNC:
Riverbend's raspberry flavoured Berliner Weisse !
A Proud and Strong Raspberry Beer

You miss having your cheek pinched by matante Ginette? Here is your chance to relive your memories with our raspberry Berliner. Naturally sour, this nectar will tickle the inside of your cheeks. Sour beers and raspberries have always gone hand in hand. By adding a scattering of delicious raspberries from our beautiful region, Riverband makes their own variation. The tasty fruit blends with the acidity of their Berliner Weisse to create a perfect balance. Let’s raise our glasses to all the aunts and experienced brewers!
Part social drama, part humanist fable, this feature debut from contemporary artist Caroline Monnet follows a young Indigenous woman as she renews family ties and confronts a world both familiar and foreign. Powerful and poetic, shot in a magnificent boreal setting, Bootlegger is a vibrant tribute to a passionate people and their fierce battle for self-determination.
In theatre: October 8 at 4:30 pm
To celebrate our 50th in style, we’ve given carte blanche to filmmaker Luc Bourdon50 Temps, his short film drawn from our archives, opens a poetic portal to the past while focusing resolutely on the future. 50 Temps is testament to a rewarding mission that has come to life through the pooled efforts of FNC team members and the many artists who work with sound and image.
Online: Starting October 6 at 7:30pm
