FIFA director René Rozon has announced that radio host Franco Nuovo would join Hour columnist Anne Lagacé Dowson as spokespersons of the festival, which will celebrate its 30th edition from March 15 to 25.
Anne Lagacé Dowson: “FIFA is a jewel among the many Montreal festivals. A success that we can all be proud of!”
Franco Nuovo: “To be there at the birth of a festival and celebrate its 30th birthday—now that’s worth celebrating! A festival can’t last for three decades without being accessible. The diversity and quality of this year’s 232 films are there to prove it.”
René Rozon: “How lucky we are to be supported in our 30th anniversary by two spokespersons with such impressive communicative skills. With their usual verve, Anne Lagacé Dowson and Franco Nuovo will certainly help to raise FIFA’s profile. I’m sure that with their professionalism they will convey the importance and quality of this 30th-anniversary edition.”
