Sidings of the Afternoon Screenings – 2021 Fall

This fall Sidings of the Afternoon has been invited to screen at a variety of film and art festivals, on a variety of surfaces.

Cultural events have been very innovative since the beginning of the pandemic, with many festivals screening online, or in hybrid ways. EXiS in Seoul, South Korea, had the opportunity to screen films in person, at proper cinemas, which led to the silver-screen premiere of Sidings of the Afternoon this September.

However the most unusual exhibition platform is definitely the LED truck that MTL Connest chose to use, enabling thousands of pedestrians to enjoy the displayed (moving) images. Among others, Sidings of the Afternoon will be playing on the large LED screen on the side of this truck roaming around the city of Montreal. If you are around, please make sure to check out this unusual sight!

Here is the list of screenings this fall:
