I don't know what Kaybeck is, I'm assuming it's a Canadian thing, maybe some kind of incentive program or film festival, perhaps? Never the less, I reiterate, Wow!

AH HA, I would have never put that together. Just out of curiosity, what fueled this apparent hatred of Quebec you seem to foster? The film was shot in the Congo so it technically didn't come out of Quebec. I know it's no Dogfather, (then again, what is) but still it seems like a damn fine film from the trailer and description.

and it got a 89% on Rotten Tomatoes

It might be worth seeing despite it's ancestral, French/Canadian pedigree.

Actually I didn't criticize the quality of the film :)

Come live in Canada for six months, won't take you long to develop a healthy dislike for Quebec like the rest of us in English Canada.

Ah come on, buddy, you know I'm just messin' with you though I guess I can understand, most people in America (and apparently Canada) are annoyed by the French.

The War Witch is a really good film, with a touching and emotional story. The DOP Nicolas Bolduc
was awarded the first prize at Camerimage 2012 - International Film Festival of the Art of Cinematography.

R,

Richard is just bitter that Quebec is the only place in Canada with some semblance of culture and decent arts funding. I am American and I would never live anywhere in Canada other than Montreal (the rest is just a shitty immitation of the U.S.). Sure, the French issue can get a little boring, but when the cost of living is half of that of Toronto, and the food and art is twice as good, I'll choose Quebec any day. 

 

That being said, there are a lot more commercial film jobs in Van or TO, but I work primarily in Theatre so Montreal suits me just fine.

Wow! Can't believe this thread's anti-Quebec and anti-french direction, it is sad and should not be allowed on a forum like this one. We're not all separatists out here Richard, and even if we were, you should not post comments like that. Nicolas and Kim's work on War Witch should only make you proud. Canada's sent three films to the oscars in three years for best foreign films, all of them coming out of Quebec by the way.

My comment also goes to you James. Annoyed by the French, get out of Texas a bit.

Wow is right, I didn't even know this forum had any members from Quebec!

 

Of course Quebec has the ability to send three films in three years to the Oscars in the best foreign film category.  For one thing even though Quebec is just 23% of Canada's population (and falling) it receives 50% of the funding from TeleFilm!  Gee that's nice.  When it comes to TeleFilm funding places like Manitoba and Alberta are not even on the map.

 

Secondly, Quebec's French language films do not have to compete with English language product.  So that gives them a clear advantage.  

 

Does it surprise me that a Quebec film, as usual, dominates Canada's film awards? No not at all.  In English Canada we all know what will happen if Quebec does not get its way, the screaming will be very loud and last a very long time.

Montreal was once Canada's largest city, now Toronto is double its size.  Ask yourself.....why?

Quebec even has their own film awards.  Because winning everything at the English Canadian awards isn't enough for the Quebec film industry.  Gee maybe the Jutra Awards will welcome English Canadian films and English speaking presenters?  After all I'm sure Quebecers want to reciprocate English Canadian generosity.
