Last fall, Millenium 2020 was the last festival before the cinemas closed. We are pleased to be the first festival to invite you back to theaters to discover the best of the 2021 edition.


Join us from June 10 to 20 to celebrate the return of cinema and (re)discover the beauty of films on the big screen. And let's share together the pleasure of experiencing culture and exchanging the emotions and ideas that the selected films arouse!

OPENING FILM - A Thousand Cuts - by Ramona S. Diaz

Disinformation campaigns are emerging on social networks and increasingly infiltrate society.

Anthony Belanger - IFJ General Secretary
