Our Everyday Life by Ines Tanovic (Bosnia-Hezegovine – Slovenia – Croatia)

The 39th Montreal World Film Festival taking place from August 27th to September 7th 2015, announced the line-up of its World Competition as well as First Feature Competition. Members of both Juries are also public as of today. “Over the decades, the MWFF has achieved its cultural and an economic mission by offering audiences and professionals a multitude of films, of all genres and provenances,” stated Serge Losique who added “An institution recognized by cineastes the world over, this great cinematic institution has always worked hard to assure its perenniality. It has always been about bringing to Montreal screens the new and interesting films that constitute the best showcase of essential cinema culture.”

This year the number of entries to the MWFF sections has overtaken those of previous years : over 2000 feature and short films (in equal proportion) have been screened by the selection committee not mentioning the other films viewed during festivals abroad. The number of countries within the selection highlights this increase as 86 countries will be represented during the 39th edition of the Festival. There are 36 World Premieres in those competitions
