A Main Film event organized with the support of the Conseil des arts de Montréal

Over the course of two days, artists, theorists, programmers, curators and experimental film lovers will come together for a series of round table discussions, film screenings and an installation to reflect on, question, discuss, discover and share in this multi-faceted art practice, considered to be cinema’s very soul. 

Our aim is to create an event that offers the opportunity to discover experimental filmmaking as a vast and rich art form, revealing endless possibilities and links between theory and practice.
