Plein(s) Écran(s) are an online short film festival on Facebook since 2016. An original concept, 100% Quebecois, created in partnership with the social network. The primary objective of the festival is to celebrate the work of local filmmakers. The goal is to use the immense popularity of Facebook to offer the short film an exceptional showcase. The Plein(s) Écran(s) platform offers users from all over the world a free and virtual experience, with a simple “Like” click, thanks to the simplicity and ubiquity of their Facebook account.
We propose to rethink the concept of festival by using the web to create a cinematographic event unique in Quebec and easily accessible to the general public everywhere on the territory and around the world, so that all eyes are riveted to the richness of our cinema.
There’s a Quebec Competition and a French Competition. There are 7 awards in total.
342-1 Rue Sherbrooke, Est, Montréal, Qc, H2X 1E6
No entry fee.
