The Festival cinéma du monde de Sherbrooke (FCMS) offers a varied program of over 80 projections as well as an array of education and outreach activities.

With thanks to our local, national and international filmmakers, we invite our public to join us in a voyage of discovery across the world’s continents.

Our series of round tables, Ciné-Échanges, evening celebrations and special events are intended to incite dialogue, creating a platform for on-going debate and discussion. Through its enduring passion for cinema, and by providing an opportunity for filmmakers to showcase their work, the FCMS contributes to the evolving vitality of the film industry. This annual get-together is a gateway to the world, offering us a rare opportunity to discover and explore new cultures.
