Synopsis: Chuck, the beloved host of a morning show, finds himself on the front page of all the newspapers and gossip magazines after a scandal involving his drug and alcohol addiction erupts. All of Quebec is in shock, but for those close to him, this is the final straw. With his reputation on the line, Chuck heads to rehab in order to convince his spouse, his agent, and the public of his (relative) goodwill. The problem: Chuck doesn’t really think he needs help··· he tells anyone who will listen that he’s just a party guy!

Synopsis: Just after midnight, on the crest of a hill, the last few pounds of air hiss out of a 10,290-ton freight train. Powered only by gravity, the runaway descends. Within seconds, six million liters of Bakken fuel explode, 47 are dead, incinerating downtown. From director Phillipe Falardeau, Lac-Mégantic investigates one of the worst oil train tragedies in history, a foreseeable catastrophe ignited by corporate and political negligence.

Script: Jean-Christophe Réhel
Direction: Sarah Pellerin

Category: Short Form Competition

Synopsis: An offbeat, moving and inspiring comedy that reveals how sick people can be happier than those who are bursting with health! This is the inspiring story of four friends, all of whom have cystic fibrosis, and who rediscover a fierce desire to live life to the fullest when they learn that one of them could die before autumn’s end. But make no mistake, this series is not about illness! It looks at the issues of life, friendship, making dreams come true and the people who are by your side when things go very wrong.

Number of episodes: 10
