MONTREAL, QUEBEC June 26, 2008 - Ubisoft Montreal is proud to announce that it will be once more the presenting sponsor of the 12th edition of the Fantasia Film Festival, North Americas premier genre cinema event, which will be held from July 3rd to 21st, 2008. Partners since 2003, Ubisoft and Fantasia share the desire to promote artistic, immersive, creative, and authentic works.
In addition to being widely recognized in Montreal and around the world, every year, Ubisoft offers video games fans a wide range of varied titles. In fact, the eclectic group of Fantasia Festival goers is made up of movie lovers who also happen to be gamers.
With this partnership, combined with the launch of the Ubisoft Digital Arts studio and our recent collaborations with world-renowned producers, such as Oscar-winners Peter Jackson and James Cameron, Ubisoft is fully committed to the convergence of the film and video game industries, affirmed Yannis Mallat, CEO, Ubisoft Montreal. Stay tuned, were just getting started!
Until Ubisoft hits the screens (with its cinema in which YOU are the hero!), be sure to make the most of the fantastic films featured at Concordia, just like 81 000 movie goers did last year. As Mitch Davis would say: bon cinéma!
