Reserve a Montreal hostel and visit the international film festival
Movie buffs may be interested in visiting the odd film festival, but a flick fix may not be complete until the Montreal World Film Festival (MWFF) is ticked off your list.

The action begins on August 26th and runs until September 6th, so those thinking of booking a last minute deal in Canada may like to reserve a Montreal hostel sooner rather than later.

The event will be split up into a variety of different sections, such as Documentaries of the World, World Competition, Tributes and Cinema Under the Stars, among others.

In the World Cinema category there will be an array of premieres from all around the globe and a host of prizes will be awarded for achievements such as Best Actor, Best Film and Best Director.

If any of these take your fancy then visiting the spectacle may turn into a must and people who are on the lookout for new talent in the industry could be some who might find it worthwhile to book a cheap hostel in Montreal for the event.

It aims to promote cultural diversity and understanding among a variety of countries, as well as encourage meetings between cinema professionals around the world.

President of the MWFF Serge Losique said the extravaganza is the "largest fully independent film festival in the world" and there have been considerable changes throughout the years.

He added: "These days, the commercial screens are dominated by Hollywood blockbusters. Without the Montreal World Film Festival and its 400 features, the Montreal cinematic landscape would be considerably narrowed."
