Since Sound on Sight was founded, we have always been one of the biggest fans of the Fantasia International Film Festival. With every year we provide even more coverage, updating daily with new articles, reviews and as many podcasts as humanly possible. This year in collaboration with CUTV, we will also be including video coverage of the event as a means of supporting our written and podcast content without a new program called Beyond the Film Festival. With videos about most anticipated films, Fantasia events, reviews, lists and anything else we can come up with, we will offer a whole new aspect of the festival. For those of you who are unable to attend Montreal’s favourite film festival, this will be the closest you will get to attending the event. There will be a daily update with our material, be sure to check us out and subscribe to our youtube channel!
Beyond the Film Festival is a new show on CUTV focusing on film festival coverage relevant to the Montreal community. As an alternative to mainstream media outlets, it will paint a new picture of the cinematic community in Montreal, with unique views and perspectives that reflect the needs, wants and passions of the local community.
Trailer reviews are a segment as part of the coverage of Beyond the Film Festival, as we anticipate the most exciting films of the festival and whether or not they are worth seeing.
