Reuters: US films snubbed by Montreal film fest

The Montreal World Film Festival on Tuesday announced a European-heavy competition lineup that includes no U.S. titles, though American entries have been booked for out-of-competition screenings. Among the 22 in-competition films unveiled for the festival’s 30th edition (August 24-September 4) are Norwegian director Hans Petter Moland’s “Pedersen: High-School Teacher“; Philippe Lioret’s “Don’t Worry, I’m Fine” from France; Swedish director Maria von Heland’s “Search“; Hans-Ulrich Schlumpf’s “Ultima Thule” from Switzerland; and Spanish director Carlos Iglesias’ “Crossing Borders.” Canada’s “The Secret Life of Happy People,” the Stephane Lapointe-directed drama that closes the festival, is the lone North American entry. Reuters reports.

I am glad to hear that Montreal World Film Festival has snubbed Hollywood films. It’s about time. Because Toronto is completely sold out to Hollywood. We have three major festivals in canada–Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver. The audience will love to see these festivals taget certain markets e.e Montreal does European films, Toronto does Hollywood and Vancouver does Asia and pacific.
