Live from: 2007 Tremblant Film Festival

It usually serves as a ski hill during the crisper months and gives a green-friendly view of the stars above, but for the second year in a row, Mont Tremblant will best serve those who like the intimacy of screen, projector and film. A two hour-ish ride north of Montreal, the Tremblant Film Festival may just be another blimp on the film festival circuit map (we must be closing in on the 1,000 festival mark soon), but Park City’s French-Canadian cousin has the charm, the foreign culture thing, the lieu going for it and also brought along the sort of stars who don’t need a telescope to get a good eyeful. IONCINEMA.com will be present to cover the fest.

Opening this past Wednesday with the French comedy Michou d'Auber with Gérard Depardieu and Nathalie Baye and closing with Julie Delpy’s rom com 2 Days in Paris on Sunday night, this 5-day event allows the extreme cinephile and curious onlooker to get a sampling of U.S Independent and Euro-flavored gems curatored by programming director Daniaile Jarry. You’ve got leftovers from Sundance (The Good Life, Adrift in Manhattan and War/Dance), a sampling from Tribeca (The TV Set, Two Days in Paris, Charlie Bartlett) a pair of advance screenings ahead of their U.S release dates in Death at a Funeral and Talk to Me and the rest is filled mostly Euro fare.

       

       

Supporting their films, ADRIFT IN MANHATTAN will bring Heather Graham and helmer Alfredo De Villa and THE GOOD LIFE will bring first-time filmmaker Steve Berra and actor Mark Webber to the snow-less slopes.
 
Apart from the cool offering of free outdoor screenings, the schedule also includes a good two dozen other selections – click here to get a view.
