Festival favourite RiP: A Remix Manifesto will screen at this year’s Rendez-vous du cinéma québécois as part of a workshop/panel discussion. RiP explores the issues of intellectual property in the digital era and shatters the wall between users and producers.
The screening takes place on Wednesday, February 25 at 4 pm at the Auditorium de la Grande Bibliothèque de Montréal. Following the film, a panel discussion concerning copyright and content creation in the digital age will feature director Brett Gaylor.
The festival itself runs from February 18 to 28 and features 23 NFB productions, 4 of which are in English – Alan Kohl’s Roadsworth: Crossing the Line and Tracey Deer’s Club Native screen on February 20 and 21, respectively, while both Nollywood Babylon and RiP: A Remix Manifesto screen on February 24. In addition, there’s a free 3D program entitled NFB in 3D featuring an additional four titles – Falling in Love Again, June, Tower Bahwer and Facing Champlain, a Work in 3 Dimensions.
