A world premiere that has punch and impact!
On Thursday, October 31, the Festival du cinéma international en Abitibi-Témiscamingue will present the world premiere of Bagarreurs inc., a documentary by director Sophie Lambert. This film is about a topical issue in the Quebec and international hockey community: hockey fights. Bagarreurs inc. provides insight into the world of these tough hockey guys. The camera follows a 22-year old player who aspires to become a hockey agitator and power play winger. But to attain his goal, he must drop his gloves.
Seeking to highlight the extraordinary work of colleagues and partners, the Festival will pay tribute to Armand Lafond (AXIA Films), an avid cinema-lover whose dedication and initiative have contributed to the development of auteur cinema in Quebec.
The Festival du cinéma international en Abitibi-Témiscamingue is proud to announce the presentation of two film premieres:
Chasse au Godard d’Abbittibbi, Éric Morin’s first feature film, on the opening night of the event, Saturday, October 26.
The world premiere of Alex marche à l’amour, by Dominic Lecler, will be screened on Sunday, October 27.
