National Film Board docs in Trois-Rivières festival

Trente tableaux image.jpgOver the next few weeks, Trois Rivières plays host to a unique film festival in Quebec. It features the latest documentary work and film shorts produced by the National Film Board.

Other cities in Quebec used to hold similar events - but Trois Rivieres is now the last -- and it's going strong. The festival increased its offering last year (on its 15th anniversary) and attendance jumped.

Diane Hétu works at the NFB in Partnerships, Institutional and communities, Audience Development, Accessibility and Digital Enterprises. She spoke with Ainslie MacLellan about the festival and the films.
