My Summer in Provence

Lea, Adrian, and their little brother Theo go on holiday in Provence with their estranged grandfather, whom they have never met because of a family quarrel. It is not the holiday they dreamed of, especially since their parents have just announced that they are splitting up. But despite the initial disappointment and the inevitable clash of generations, over the course of their turbulent summer, both generations will be transformed by the other.

The Marchers

France, October 1893. The true story of a small crew of nine that started a walk for peace and against racism from Marseille to Paris. At their arrival, they managed to gather more than 100,000 people, offering a strong and sincere message of hope and equality.


Miraculum is an ensemble film where characters cross paths without knowing their actions will affect the lives of others. We begin with a nurse who is a Jehovah’s Witness that grows fond of the miracle survivor of a plane crash. Then, two sexagenarians, a bartender and a parking lot attendant want to explore their forbidden passions. Also, a conservative, well-off couple drown their disappointments in booze and gambling. And finally, a man does his utmost to make amends for an irredeemable action, bringing us to a plane bound for Cuba. Sometimes, we’re just waiting for a miracle…

I Killed my Mother

I Killed my Mother is a semi-autobiographical debut feature film by then 20-year-old Xavier Dolan. The film follows Hubert Minel (Dolan), a 16-year-old Quebecois living in suburban Montreal with his mother, Chantale. On his way out of the closet, Hubert struggles to communicate with Chantale, and their relationship grows increasingly tumultuous. In an effort to fill the void, he begins to rely on his boyfriend, Antonin, and teacher, Ms. Cloutier. Finding himself increasingly unable to express his feelings to Chantale, Hubert channels his frustrations into painting, writing, and short films. When his grades begin to slip, Chantale enlists Hubert’s absent father to enroll him in boarding school. Feeling betrayed, Hubert is unable to come out to his mother, even as he encounters violent homophobic bigotry. He plots a final confrontation, having Antonin spring him from Boarding school to meet Chantale at their former family home.


Based on the true events that occurred on December 6, 1989, at Montreal’s Polytechnique School, the movie tells us about that specific day through the eyes of two students, Valérie and Jean-François, whose lives have been changed forever, when a young man entered the school with one idea in mind: kill himself and take with him as many women as possible.
