SINCE OUR BEGINNINGS
WHO ARE WE?
Courts d'un soir Festival was born in 2017 out of a desire to showcase Quebec and international short films in Montreal cinemas. 5 years later, Courts d'un soir aims to be the showcase for the short format in Montreal by offering competitions for short films, independent music videos and short series. Courts d'une nuit stands out on the Montreal cultural scene for its dynamism and the variety of activities and content it offers.
The festival's commitment goes beyond its mission of recognizing emerging talents in order to offer a set of activities that allow the creation of spaces for sharing between young professions, established professionals and the general public. Courts d'un soir also offers professional development workshops for the next generation.
Finally, Courts d'un soir is also committed to the next generation. Through its Budding Filmmakers section, the festival offers young people who dream of cinema the opportunity to participate in stimulating workshops, but also to have their works screened in a competition reserved for at least 21 years of age.
