Territorial acknowledgement

The Festival du nouveau cinéma acknowledges that its activities take place in Montreal on unceded Indigenous land.
We salute the Mohawk Nation for maintaining a living connection with the territory’s great Haudenosaunee culture.


We believe that festivals, as major players in a changing industry, need to begin a process of reflection and constant work to achieve parity in both our content and the makeup of our teams and boards of directors. In order to evolve and become more transparent, we have signed the 50/50 by 2020 charter.


Diversity has always been part of the Festival’s DNA, which aims to offer film lovers the opportunity to see the works of emerging and marginal voices. In a general atmosphere sometimes monotonous, the FNC is a space for expressing divergent points of view and divergent proposals.

We recognize the otherness, the multitude of experiences, points of view and propositions, as well as their validity. The Festival du nouveau cinéma wishes to fully embody the diversity of creators as well as the diversity of artistic practices.

We deliberately promote the voices of women, indigenous peoples, members of the LGBTQ2X community and representatives of marginalized groups.




Through various partnership agreements, contests, discounts offered with the purchase of Festival tickets, etc., we encourage patrons to use more ecofriendly transit!

The Festival du nouveau cinéma offers free admission to people with reduced mobility upon presentation of the VATL card.

Since 2014, the FNC is also certified event accessible to anyone with limited physical capacity, by Kéroul, a privileged interlocutor of Tourisme Québec.

Our accessibility barrier for people with limited physical ability has also been sent to Tourisme Québec (www.bonjourquebec.com), to the Regional Tourism Association (ATR) and distributed in Kéroul's publications, including the online directory (www. keroul.qc.ca).
