Film POP at POP MONTREAL 20TH ANNIVERSARY! SEPTEMBER 22 – 26, 2021

Just narrowly escaping the streaming fate of many 2021 festivals, this edition of Film POP returns to Cinéma Moderne for an explosive big-screen showcase of the year’s best in music cinema.

Just narrowly escaping the streaming fate of many 2021 festivals, this edition of Film POP returns to Cinéma Moderne for an explosive big-screen showcase of the year’s best in music cinema. From portraits of contemporary icons and all-but-forgotten pioneers to deeply personal, political and experimental works, this year’s programming is all about coming together and finding ways to look forward, beyond the past 18 months. 

This year’s highlights include David Wexler’s Disintegration Loops (2021), a documentary about William Basinski’s seminal album series on the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, Bobbi Jo Hart’s FannyThe Right To Rock (2021), about one of the first all-female rock bands to know critical and commercial success, Les Blank’s newly restored I Went to the Dance (1989), the definitive film on South Louisiana’s Cajun and Creole/Zydeco music scene, and Jeremy Ungar & Ivaylo Getov’Soy Cubana, about the Cuban acapella group the Vocal Vidas’ historic trip to perform in Los Angeles.
