Montreal World Film Festival
While not quite Cannes or Berlin, the Montreal World Film Festival is a colorful and comprehensive feast for film lovers. There’s a sort of harmony at play here. The City of Montreal may not be quite as cosmopolitan as the natives would have you believe, but it is still the only major equitably bilingual city in North America (both New York and Los Angeles are de facto English-Spanish, but in both the linguistic divide is also a social one). Similarly, at the Montreal Festival the quality of the fare may not be uniform, but the "World" in its title is well-earned, with offerings from Albania and Uruguay to Sri Lanka and Ukraine.
