Attention High School French Teachers

Montreal - Wednesday, September 27, 2017

Through the organization Canadian Parents for French and the Communications and Marketing Division of the EMSB, the 2017 23rd edition of Cinemania (November 2 to 12) is reaching out to French high school teachers to organize field trips to this year’s program. The films are in French and they all have sub-titles. Everything shown represents a North American premiere.  Special screenings for students has been part of their agenda for years. The idea is simple: to make the cinema accessible to young people while having a pedagogical approach. This year three films have been chosen that represent good fits.

LES ENFANTS DE LA CHANCE tells the true story of Jewish children gathered in a hospital during the rafle du Vel d'Hiv (Vel d'Hiv Roundup) during WWII. KISS & CRY (Festival de Cannes 2017 - Sélection de l'ACID) tells the story of Sarah, a young competitive skater. DE TOUTES MES FORCES shares the story of Nazism, a teenager who loses his mother and finds himself in a group foster home, which he wants to hide from his friends.
