The closing ceremony of the 2016 Montreal World Film Festival was a success and Serge Losique took the opportunity to announce that the 2017 Festival, the 41st edition, will take place from 24 August to 4 September 2017.
The Festival (WFF) in 2016 was presented without any financial means and with the help of last minute of a dozen volunteers. The call for volunteers is however not unique to the FFM and many other events such as the Rogers Cup in tennis have volunteer networks for many years. In conclusion: the official competition WFF 2016 took place; money prizes with a total value of $ 1 million paid by a sponsor were distributed; movie lovers were at the event; and the official certification of INTERNATIONAL FEDERATION OF FILM PRODUCERS ASSOCIATIONS (FIAPF) is maintained.
We can only congratulate Serge Losique and recognize that he is the undisputed Master of film festivals. Bravo!
