After a stint at the Toronto International Film Festival in September, The Happy Days of Chloé Robichaud and Seven Veils by Atom Egoyan will premiere in Montreal at the 52nd Festival du nouveau cinema (FNC).

Chloé Robichaud’s film will then hit theaters on October 20, and that of Atom Egoyan in the coming months.

The FNC, which will take place from October 4 to 15, also revealed this Wednesday that it is La passion de Dodin Bouffant, by French filmmaker of Vietnamese origin Trần Anh Hùn, which will be presented at the opening. The film, which won the Best Director award at the Cannes Film Festival in May and stars Juliette Binoche and Benoit Magimel, will then be released on November 10.

In addition to Chloé Robichaud and Atom Egoyan, who will be brought together for a discussion on cinema that promises to be fascinating, two other distinguished guests will be present at the FNC: Bertrand Bonello and Catherine Breillat. In addition to each presenting their most recent films, The Beast (Bonello) and Last Summer (Breillat), the two French filmmakers with a sulphurous aura will receive a Louve d’honneur and give a master class.

Films by Nanni Moretti (Towards a Bright Future), Ken Loach (The Old Oak) and Nuri Bilge Ceylan (The Dry Herbs) will also be presented during the FNC, the full line-up of which will be unveiled on September 19.
