Ernest et Celéstine, a film that celebrates an unlikely friendship between a bear and a mouse, will open the week-long Montreal International Children’s Film Festival on Saturday, March 2, 2013.
The France/Belgium/Luxemburg co-production is one of more than 60 films from 27 countries that will be screened at Cinéma Beaubien during March break. Most films will be in their original language with English subtitles (there will be actors reading a French narration of the subtitles).
The festival includes an official jury competition, as well online voting for a viewers’ choice prize.
Tickets cost $8.50 per film; a family pass of 10 tickets is available for $70.
