Culture | Festival du Nouveau Cinema 2009

Montreal’s Festival du Nouveau Cinema (FNC) has a history of showcasing the new and innovative in Canadian and international film. Each year, new, more obscure works find a home at the FNC alongside better-known works by prominent directors. This year, the festival features its usual diversity of films. There is a significant Canadian and Quebecker presence, as well as some imported controversy from abroad in the form of the Lars von Trier gore-fest Antichrist. We suggest you take a look at the FNC schedule, online at nouveaucinema.ca, to peruse the festival’s full offerings. To get you started, we’ve chosen five films that caught our attention – some good, some bad; all of them intriguing.
