Driven by growing passion, football – as it’s called around the world – sets its course towards North America and more particularly Montreal. With that passion comes a desire to better understand the culture and the firmly established codes that are generally associated with this world-famous game.
Isn’t cinema the best vehicle to tell stories depicting the journeys, the dramas and the joys of extraordinary personalities or of sensational teams? PITCHFEST offers movie lovers, whether they are fans of football or not, the opportunity to discover film screenings – fiction, documentary and family films – including North American and Canadian premieres.
PITCHFEST also works with renowned visual artists to display original football related art installations at exhibitions and presents concerts by world class artists who themselves are fans of the beautiful game.
The festival receives the support of evenko, MEG Montreal and the Burgundy Lion Pub to create an event dedicated to soccer and to its culture.
