The program of this year’s Rendez-vous will not be announced until February 11, 2020, so nobody knows if Shootfilms’ latest film
Femmes des Casernes/Firewomen,
Written & Directed by Louise Leroux
Written & Produced by Rick Blackburn
will be selected.
There is also no way to know if it will be one of the very few feature-length documentaries in official competition.
Or, one of only two documentary films included in the prestigious tapis-bleu press conference at the
Lion D’or Cabaret, 1676 Ontario St E on February 11th.
And it is impossible to know if the film will premiere on
Thursday, March 5 at 18:00 at Cineplex Quartier Latin’s main screen.
It would be really cool though…
If the film did premiere at the Rendez-vous on March 5,
Cinéma Beaubien might decide to program it on
March 8 as a one-night-only special presentation for
International Woman’s Day 2020
and then maybe Cinéma du Parc and Cinéma du Musée
would program the film the following week of
in an exclusive limited-run engagement.
The possibility of any of this happening is all just hypothetical until the
Rendez-vous announces its official
selections for 2020.
If however Femmes des Casernes is selected I think the poster should look like this…
