Concordia Film Festival
The 2016 edition of the Concordia Film Festival will feature several firsts, including films chosen from an international open competition and an exciting multi-media exhibition.
The Concordia Film Festival (CFF) is organized by the student-run, non-profit Cinema Student Association, in collaboration with the Animate Concordia. Together, they organize and promote, through screenings and events, the works produced by a diverse range of filmmakers of the Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema. Entering its 43rd year as the largest and oldest student-run film festival in North America, the event has become a mainstay of the film industry in Montreal. The School of Cinema stands as the largest university-based centre for the study of film in Canada, with a body of works that are screened to great acclaim at festivals around the world including Cannes, TIFF, and Berlin.
