Mediafilm’s 8th CinéBazar will be held on Saturday, March 28

For the past 7 years, Mediafilm’s CinéBazar was held in the dead of winter. For its 8th edition, the movie buffs’ fair moves up to late March, in order to welcome the sunshine and a long awaited spring. The CinéBazar will take place on Saturday, March 28, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Centre du Plateau, located on the corner of East St-Joseph Blvd and Fullum St.

Something for everyone, for one day only

This event, the only one of its kind in Montreal’s cultural landscape, caters to a very diversified clientele, ranging from regular movie lovers to the most seasoned aficionados and collectors”, explains Martin Bilodeau, chief editor of Mediafilm. With the participation of 60 exhibitors displaying over 100 tables, this 8th CinéBazar promises to present its 2000 expected visitors with an attractive array of films of all formats (Blu-ray, DVD, VHS, 8 & 16mm), vintage posters, books, magazines, movie stills, games, projectors, cameras and other memorabilia dedicated to the 7th Art and sold at friendly prices.

The core industry at the Centre
It is a testament to the CinéBazar’s impacts on the local cinema industry that many organizations and institutions take pride in participating every year. Their goal: reaching out to film lovers to promote their activities and offer to bargain hunters all kinds of subscriptions, pass-tickets and loyalty card programs. These are: la Cinémathèque québécoise, the magazines 24 images, Ciné-Bulles and Cinémas, the cinemas Beaubien, Du Parc and Excentris, the distributors AZ Films, Les Films du 3 mars, FunFilm and K-Films Amérique, as well as the Montreal International Documentary Festival (RIDM).


CinéBazar is a fund-raiser dedicated to CinÉcole, a free film-education program driven by Mediafilm, in partnership with Régie du cinéma. At the end of the present school year, CinÉcole will have shown, on the big screen, great works of Quebec cinema (1987, Bidonville, Henri Henri, Tu dors Nicole, Félix et Meira) to some 4000 high-school kids.
