REGARD SCOLAIRE, it's essential.
It's so wonderful to see you again after such a long winter!
Our team lives and breathes short film, and they’ve gone above and beyond to organize this spring’s REGARD experience for young cinephiles! Like most people, we’ve had to be very flexible and make plenty of adjustments to be able to show students some of the world’s best short films. We believe it’s that important to light the flame of cultural curiosity.
From March 15 to 19, classes from kindergarten to secondary 5 will watch live online screenings. Actor Félix-Antoine Tremblay, the spokesperson for this year’s REGARD Scolaire, will present the films with help from the adorable duo of Phil and Ciné.
Students will watch a selection of 45 excellent short films, organized in 7 programs. More than ever, we worked to present a diverse selection: local, foreign, creative, original, inspiring. We hope the films will spark lively discussions among classmates and friends.
To mark the festival’s 25th anniversary, we’ve also enhanced our educational program by complementing our online workshops with dynamic workbooks, along with other materials related to the films. Several selections from our retrospective of 25 years of Quebec shorts, coming in March, will be available as a bonus for teachers who want to extend the experience. We’re also making the REGARD Scolaire program available to schools everywhere in Quebec, so that young people across the province can share this great opportunity to discover the world of short film at school!
Finally, I want to take this opportunity to thank the many teachers who are renewing their trust in REGARD, and the filmmakers and distributors who make such strong and inspiring films available to us.
Enjoy the show and a culture-filled spring!
REGISTRATIONS CLOSED ON MARCH 8! SEE YOU NEXT YEAR!
