As part of the FNC Lab section and its interactive works competition, the Festival is looking for works that experiment with new audiovisual formats and the most innovative technological tools to tell a story, express a concept and contribute, more actively than ever, to the cinema of tomorrow.

The most daring and original Web, transmedia and multiplatform projects will be chosen for presentation to the public and will be eligible for the Innovation Award ($1,000 in cash), handed out every year.

To submit an interactive work, please send the following documentation to innovation@nouveaucinema.ca:

-title of the work
-name of the author (optional: short biography)
-year of production
-short description of the work
-hyperlink, video or visual


The Festival du nouveau cinema, in its FNC Lab section, offers a series of performances bridging different disciplines and forms of expression, a rare chance for artists to commune with a wide range of audiences. Focused on the “live” aspect of audiovisual and cinematic works, the performances form a heterogeneous collection of practices focused on the presence, performative aspect and perceptual experience of sounds and images.

To submit a performance, please write to fnclab@nouveaucinema.ca
