Ciné Québec 2020

 

The Museum of Work & Culture invites the public to an upcoming event that will help curate the 2020 Flickers’ Rhode Island International Film Festival.

Ciné Québec, an evening of Québecois films in celebration of the month of Francophonie, takes place Thursday, March 5, at the MoWC. The evening will begin at 6pm with a wine and cheese reception in the MoWC gallery.

At 7pm, attendees will watch and vote on new and exciting short films from Québec currently under consideration by RIIFF. The film that wins the most votes will gain automatic competition entry to the festival.

Ciné Québec will conclude with a screening of the feature-length film Les fleurs oubliées (pictured).

In the film, Brother Marie-Victorin, founder of Montreal’s Botanical Garden, is bored with heaven and decides to return to earth to help Albert Payette save Quebec’s flora from Transgenia, a multinational that is poisoning the Earth with chemicals.

Tickets are $15 and may be reserved by calling (401) 769-9675 or purchased at ShopMoWC.com.

This event is made possible by the Délegation of Québec in Boston.
