Will there be a physical Box Office at the Cinémathèque this year?

No. The Box Office will operate entirely online this year. This is to minimize physical interactions and to go along with the various governmental sanitary directives.

If there were screenings at la Cinémathèque, you will have to buy your ticket online prior to your arrival.


Why can't I view the films outside of the province of Québec?

Access to viewing the documentary films of pour programming is limited to the province of Quebec for reasons linked to film distribution rights. It is therefore not possible to view the films on our platforms if you are located outside of the province.
