Public Listening Session

Activities and Events

The Soirées d’Écoute Publique (ecoutemtl.ca) invite you once again this year to discover some of the finest audio and radio work being done today with a feature-length listening session in a movie theatre. The program includes the 2017 short- form winner of the Canadian Le réel à l’écoute competition, followed by a particularly engrossing long-form Belgian work. A session without images, where the imagination confronts reality.
