BERGMAN ISLAND (stf)
BERGMAN ISLAND follows a couple of American filmmakers, Chris (Vicky Krieps) and Tony (Tim Roth), who retreat to the mythical Fårö island for the summer. In this wild, breathtaking landscape where Bergman lived and shot his most celebrated pieces, they hope to find inspiration for their upcoming films. As days spent separately pass by, the fascination for the island operates on Chris and souvenirs of her first love resurface. Lines between reality and fiction will then progressively blur and tear our couple even more apart.

FANNY: THE RIGHT TO ROCK (stf)
"Revivify Fanny. And my work is done."- David Bowie Sometime in the 1960s, in sunny Sacramento, two Filipina-American sisters got together with other teenage girls to play music. Little did they know their garage band would evolve into the legendary rock group Fanny, the first all-women band to release an LP with a major record label (Warner/Reprise, 1970). Despite releasing 5 critically-acclaimed albums over 5 years, touring with famed bands from SLADE to CHICAGO and amassing a dedicated fan base of music legends including David Bowie, Fanny's groundbreaking impact in music was written out of history... until bandmates reunite 50 years later with a new rock record deal.

With incredible archival footage of the band's rocking past intercut with its next chapter releasing a new LP today, the film includes interviews with a large cadre of music icons, including Def Leppard's Joe Elliott, Bonnie Raitt, The Go-Go's Kathy Valentine, Todd Rundgren, The Runaways' Cherie Currie, Lovin' Spoonful's John Sebastian, The B52's Kate Pierson, Charles Neville and David Bowie guitarist and bassist Earl Slick and Gail Ann Dorsey.

Fighting early barriers of race, gender and sexuality in the music industry, and now ageism, the incredible women of Fanny are ready to claim their hallowed place in the halls of rock 'n' roll fame.

Saint-Narcisse (STF)
In 70s Quebec, when beautiful young Dominic loses the grandma who raised him, he learns the truth about his birth mother. Not to mention that he has a twin. Off he heads to a mysterious monastery full of decadent monks in Saint-Narcisse, Quebec, where the two brothers become one in an orgiastic communion. Queer national treasure Bruce LaBruce, an FNC regular (Gerontophilia, 2013 Focus Québec/Canada prize), delivers his most ambitious film to date. Leather, motorcycles, magic spells, sensual doppelgangers and religious imagery come together in a deliciously camp quest for identity.
