With events, meetings and tastings, gastronomy is at the heart of this year’s activities. At the crossroads of visual creations and culinary arts, we promise a unique and surprising experience. Tastings of local and original products according to the themes of the 48th edition will be proposed in different Festival venues.
Our goal is to create a bridge between the worlds of cinema and gastronomy through partnerships with Quebec chefs, restaurant owners, caterers and mixologists.
