Event Details

The goal of the Montreal International Black Film Festival (MIBFF) is to bring audiences the most beautiful and the most amazing new Black films, while creating a space to debate major cultural, social and socio-economic issues. The MIBFF wants to promote a different kind of cinema, cinema that hails from here and from abroad and that does not necessarily have the opportunity to grace the big screen, groundbreaking cinema that moves us, that raises awareness and that takes us all by surprise. The MIBFF wants to deal with issues and present works that raise questions, that provoke, that make us smile, that leave us perplexed, that shock us…


Le Festival International du Film Black de Montréal veut offrir au public les plus belles et les plus étonnantes découvertes du cinéma Black tout en étant un lieu de débat des grands enjeux culturels, sociaux et socio-économiques. Le FIFBM veut privilégier un cinéma autre, un cinéma qui vient d’ici ou d’ailleurs et qui ne reçoit pas forcément l’éclairage des projecteurs, un cinéma inédit, qui émeut, qui sensibilise et qui surprend! Tout en abordant des sujets et en présentant des œuvres qui interpellent, qui provoquent, qui font sourire, qui laissent perplexe, qui choquent…
