Opening night | Soirée d’ouverture 2016

OPENING NIGHT
Thursday May 19 | Jeudi 19 mai 2016
8pm – 90 minutes (screenings at 9pm)
La Vitrola (4602 Boulevard St-Laurent, Montréal)

Opening Night at MUFF 11 offers two programmes of films that showcase the range of works audiences will find across the festival, from playful and humorous, to punchy and visceral, to elegiac and haunting. There’ll also be music, pink drinks, other drinks, dancing, and a special treat from local experimental filmmaker, Steven Woloshen.

The Scratch Guest Book event gives MUFF’s Opening Night guests the opportunity to write messages or greetings directly onto 35mm film stock. The finished group project will be screened during our Sunday “Hangover Brunch” programme. Woloshen describes the experience as “like having access to a time machine.”

La soirée d’ouverture du Montreal Underground Film festival, un avant-goût du festival en deux programmes et l’évènement SCRATCH GUEST BOOK du cinéaste Steven Woloshen !

Scratch Guest Book donne l’occasion aux spectateurs du MUFF de participer à un projet collectif, en écrivant un message directement sur de la pellicule filmique. Le résultat sera projeté le dernier jour du festival.
