This year, from March 1 to March 31, the National Film Board of Canada (NFB) celebrated the Francophonie with 264 free screenings across the country, 75% of which was outside Quebec. More than 7,000 people attended.
On this, the 50th anniversary of the Official Languages Act, the NFB proposed, among other things, a program that opened the discussion on bilingualism with The Devil’s Share, a documentary by Luc Bourdon. If you haven’t had the chance to see it yet, you can watch this feature film on line. The Devil’s Share is a feat of composition, editing, and archives; a kaleidoscopic film offering a new and distinctive perspective on Quebec’s Quiet Revolution in the 1970s. A love letter to the power of images, The Devil’s Share is a journey back to a remarkable point in time. A unique cinematic experience that brings together all the different currents and cultures that left a mark on North America.
But, wait! There’s more! While waiting for the next edition of the Rendez-vous de la Francophonie (RVF), you can discover other titles in the collection on NFB.ca, with its more than 4,000 productions available at any time free of charge.
The NFB’s programming for the 2020 edition of the RVF promises to be rich and varied. For further information on the programs of the Rendez-vous de la Francophonie 2020, slated for the beginning of next year, please send your contact information to: email@example.com.
See you next year for the NFB’s 15th year at the RVF!
