*In 1971, the Festival du nouveau cinéma (Montreal) was originally created
as the « Festival international du film en 16mm ». 16mm was from the start
the format of choice for cinema experimentation – something this young
festival wished to support.*

*The FNC Lab is a meeting place for dialogue among the most out-there
experimental offerings. Artists and thinkers question and reinvent the idea
of the screen, deconstruct images, reappropriate media and pay tribute to
the many hidden sides of cinema, juggling the homemade and the conceptual,
the medium and the message, film stock and pixels. Not to be missed :

*Here is an overview of this year’s experimental film program*
