Montreal International Documentary Festival
3575, av. Du Parc
For the past four years already, monthly RIDM+ (formerly known as Docville) screenings have been premiering the year’s best documentary films in Montreal. This is a unique opportunity to see some excellent documentaries on the big screen. Since last year, Festival Fantasia has also developed this concept by offering genre films drawing critical acclaim. Soon there will be a passport available for admission to both festivals’ programming. By attending these sessions, you are also lending your support to these festivals, which offer activities throughout the year. Since Excentris closed, screenings now take place at the Cinéma du Parc. So, while you’re there, you can check out the programming of this film theatre, which is another big favourite of mine!
RIDM+ on the last Thursday of every month at 8 p.m, from January through August
