    The Fabienne Colas Foundation, which created the Montreal International Black Film Festival (formerly the Montreal International Haitian Film Festival), Haiti on Fire and the Quebecois Film Festival in Haiti, is pleased and proud to announce the 7th Montreal International Black Film Festival, slated to run from September 21 to October 2, 2011. A dynamic, refreshing and audacious festival whose ambition is to encourage the development of the independent film industry and to promote more films on the reality of Black people from around the world.

    The Montreal International Black Film Festival wants to promote a different kind of cinema, cinema that hails from here or from abroad and that does not necessarily have the opportunity to grace the big screen, groundbreaking cinema that moves us, that raises awareness and takes us all by surprise! The Montreal International Black Film Festival wants to deal with issues and present works that raise questions, that provoke, that make us smile, that leave us perplexed, that shock us… A fresh, new look at black cinema from the four corners of the globe!!!
