Festival international du
court métrage au saguenay

Word from the Short Film Market Team !

The Short Film Market’s 15th edition marks the return of several crowd-pleasers, but also many exciting additions and novelties, all with the aim of offering festival-goers, creators and professionals from here and abroad a program that is always eclectic and engaging !

Among our many comebacks this year, let us highlight the return of the very popular Boot Camps series, which will equip—thanks to our collaborators at Hot Docs and Lussier & Khouzam—filmmakers and producers against all odds! Screenwriters, rejoice! The Market celebrates this year the return of the Cours Écrire ton Court contest with a pitch session, tailor-made workshops, and an award ceremony with more than $100,000 in services at stake!

The absolute darling of our professional guests, our Networking Breakfast will once again take place twice during the Festival to facilitate meetings between the local industry and our international guests. Combining a speed-greeting formula with interlocutors from all over the world, all in the warm setting of l’Érudit café, this essential rendezvous promises quality exchanges in good company !

In other news, our loving festivalgoers will have the opportunity this year to attend three master classes, two roundtables, as well as a case study in our grand theatres, the Théâtre Banque Nationale and the François-Brassard theatre. Featuring an exciting group of panellists, and dealing with themes as varied as the animated documentary genre, preservation and filmmaking in tandem, our festivalgoers will be at the forefront to ask their questions and discover unexpected facets of the short film industry.

Distinguished guests will also visit our headquarters: the international organization Short Film Conference will host—for the first time at REGARD—a series of talks dedicated to professionals working in the field of film festivals. Join us for lively debates, and stick around for Happy Hour with the board and members !

Finally, let us also mention that we will have the immense pleasure of welcoming the actor-and spokesman of our 23rd edition, Rémy Girard, the director-producer-screenwriter and editor Renée Beaulieu, as well as 2019 Oscar-nominated director Jeremy Comte, for Master Classes you surely don’t want to miss !

Wishing you all a great Market !
