The Montreal International History Film Festival (FIFHM) is an annual cultural event devoted to history cinema. Its founders, one filmmaker and two historians, are passionate about the expression of history through cinema.
FIFHM’s mission is to spread films and media productions that focus on the treatment of history, be it personal or collective history. The festival’s organizers wish to bring forward the dialogue between history and cinema for the better comprehension of current social issues, in Quebec, Canada and throughout the world.
The festival is interested in the diffusion, popularization and transmission of historical knowledge through film, be it fictional, animation or documentary. The festival’s aim is to promote exchanges between filmmakers, historians and the general public, offering a showcase of films of any genre or other media products (especially television series or, eventually, video games) where history is presented and represented. In the future, the festival intends to develop a youth section to promote contact between the younger generations and the representations of historical content.
The festival will hold its third edition from May 12 to 16 2021. Film and history professionals are welcome to join the public in a wide discussion about cinema as a medium of historical knowledge. Workshops will also be held for film professionals.
