Filmmaker Falardeau Dies

Filmmaker Falardeau Dies
Filmmaker Pierre Falardeau has lost his battle with cancer. He was 62.

He passed away on Friday in Montreal, Canada.

Falardeau's films dealt with issues of Quebec nationalism and he regularly appeared in the Canadian press to speak out about the issues.

He won a Genie Award in 1983 for the first film in his Elvis Gratton trilogy, but went on to boycott the competition in 2002.

Premier of Quebec Jean Charest says, "Mr. Falardeau, we know, was a pamphleteer. He was a man who liked controversy, who had very strong opinions and who expressed them using a shock formula. But his artistic works were significant."

Telefilm funds 5 Quebec films

Telefilm funds 5 Quebec films
TORONTO -- Telefilm Canada said Thursday it would bankroll five French-language features, citing the Quebec production sector's expertise in turning out successful movies. The investments from the federal production support agency will go to five projects: Camping sauvage, directed by Guy A. Lepage, Sylvain Roy and Andre Ducharme; Dans l'oeil du chat by Rudy Barichello; La Lune viendra d'elle-meme by Marie-Jan Seille; La Vengeance d'Elvis Wong by Pierre Falardeau, and La Vie avec mon pere by Sebastien Rose. The financing is the first to flow from the Canada Feature Film Fund this year, and follows recent comments by Telefilm Canada executive director Richard Stursberg that the Canadian film industry had much to learn from the Quebec movie industry when it came to boxoffice appeal.
