The MMFA loves cinema
FIFA's multidisciplinary vision is in perfect harmony with that of the MMFA. The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts has created a permanent exhibition space for the International Festival Films on Art (FIFA).
Since 1860, the museum’s varied collection has grown steadily, and now it is one of the most visited museums in Canada. 2014 added a new stone to the edifice with the integration of FIFA, whose multidisciplinary vision is in perfect harmony with that of the MMFA, at the crossroads of different artistic disciplines.
The new partnership features an additional program, FIFA + at the MMFA, of some forty films connected to the major exhibitions produced at the Museum and to the numerous activities presented every weekend.
This twinning of the strengths of the two organizations will reaffirm the cultural mission of our metropolis, particularly in terms of the visibility of the MMFA’s many international exhibitions. Also, with FIFA finding a permanent home at the MMFA, its own festival programming will be enriched as Montréal’s worldwide reputation in the field rises.
