The Festival des Films du Monde, aka the Montreal World Film Festival, officially kicked off yesterday with a Gala Opening Bash that featured hoop performances, leaving festival attendees already abuzz about The Hooping Life. The hooping documentary will be having it’s Canadian premiere screening this Saturday, August 28th, at 7:30pm, and we hope to see as many hoopers as possible in Montreal for all that is to come. A full day of hoopiness awaits those in attendance with free hoop classes beginning at 4:00pm at the Place de Festivals (@ Maisonneuve Blvd & Jeanne-Mance Streets), followed by our big pre-screening hoop jam that will culminate with a parade of hoopers over to the Cineplex Quartier Latin, 350 rue Emery St. Hooping.org arrived in Montreal yesterday evening and we can’t wait to hoop with you! If you can’t make the premiere and you’d still like to catch a local screening, don’t worry. There are two others on the Montreal Film Festival calendar on Sunday, August 29th at 2:30pm and on Monday, August 30th at 5:00pm – each at the Cineplex Quartier Latin as well.
