Toronto, (Ontario) 7 August 2015 – This year, at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), labelled as the leading public film festival in the world, seven different film producers and or directors from Quebec will have their works presented as first screenings.

The most anticipated films are from two well known Québécois directors, Jean-Marc Vallée, known for Dallas Buyers Club and Wild, and Denis Villeneuve known most recently for his movies Prisoners and Incendies.

Vallée’s film Demolition will be opening the 40th presentation of the famous festival and Villeneuve’s Sicario is highly anticipated. A third Montreal born director, who is no stranger to the festival Pierre Falardeau, will also be presenting his new film Guilbord s’en va-t-en guerre, (My Internship in Canada), a timely film about elections and their candidates. Falardeau is most known for his latest films, M. Lazhar and The Good Lie, featuring Reese Witherspoon.

Among the other Québécois film producers, Anne Emond will be presenting a film called Les êtres Chers, a film about aging, Guy Edouin will present his latest feature film, Ville-Marie “en premiere”, André Turpin will show off his Endorphine, his latest movie after 13 years in hiding, and last but not least, Geneviève Dulude-De-Celles will present her first feature film, Bienvenue à F.L.

The seven Quebec born filmmakers are among the top ten Canadians who have had their works chosen by the Festival’s organizers. There are eight other budding film makers from Quebec who will have their short films presented throughout the festival that runs from September 10 to 20, making it a fantastic year for Canadian productions, not counting the numerous actors who are also in nomination for awards.
