Montreal World Film Festival has a high and certain festival profile and the people in charge wish to maintain these standards. In his introduction, the festival’s President, Serge Losique refers to the transformation of the exhibition of films in movie theatres in recent years. “These days, the programming of commercial cinemas is dominated by blockbusters. Without the Montreal World Film Festival and its annual selection of some 400 films from 80 countries, the Montreal film landscape would be drastically reduced”.
