We are starting the Montreal Feminist Film Festival’s second edition which is taking place on unceded Indigenous land by honouring First Nations and showing Indigenous shorts curated by Jocelyn Piirainen, an Inuit curator. Come check out these amazing Indigenous, feminist and intersectionnal shorts!
The MFFF will screen shorts whose narrative and style are firmly feminist. We want to celebrate the plurality of feminisms and our cultural diversity by showcasing local and international films made by multicultural auteurs.
The mission of the Montreal Feminist Film Festival is to move, inspire and represent a wide variety of femininities and feminisms in order to increase their visibility. We strongly believe in intersectionnality and strong female characters who challenge gender norms. We are a trans-inclusive, queer festival and accept films directed by everyone regardless of their gender, and strongly encourage marginalized people to send us their work. Our ambition is to show a diverse program with films from all over the world with a special focus on films directed by women of colour, indigenous and LGBTQ+ filmmakers. We aim for this festival to be accessible and inclusive for everyone.
All screenings will be Pay What You Can, no one will be turned away ($7 suggested).
