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.

Born in Montreal, Justine Smith is a recent Film Studies Specialization Graduate from Concordia University. She is a passionate lover of all aspects of cinema, and has much love for making film as she does writing about it. Always on the search for the next big thing, she loves to check out the best of new cinema, while digging deep into the past for old gems. Justine has an unusual passion for social media and is currently suffering from a Twitter addiction. She has contributed to Soundonsight as a writer since early 2010, and still makes semi-regular appearances on their podcast. Some of her favorite films are 'The Red Shoes', 'Catch-22', 'Jules et Jim', Lola Montes', 'McCabe and Mrs. Miller'.
Sound on Sight is an independently owned and operated publication, started by a couple of film students back in 2008. We are not a general-interest magazine; we focus on film-literate, pop-culture savvy moviegoers with discerning tastes but broad palettes. We specialize in genre films, independent cinema, and documentaries, as well as the best of television and comics. Contrary to popular belief, the name of our publication (originally a radio show), was influenced by our favourite Steven Soderbergh film, and not the venerable British magazine.
