There are roughly three weeks remaining for Quebecers to take in the Festival Cinema du Monde in Sherbrooke, which kicked off in-person events on July 2.
Last year, the festival was forced online due to the pandemic. But, according to the festival’s director, Malika Bajjaje, they were able to adjust on the fly this summer. They presented part of the festival online in April, and in June.
However, July and August presented a special opportunity for the festival’s organizers, Bajjaje explained, as they explored regular outdoor screenings every weekend for the first time in the festival’s history, which have since turned into a popular outing.
