The Ciné-Parc Dante’s eighth edition : a success !

A more than positive assessment

On august 28, the last edition of our event the Ciné-Parc Dante took place. It is with laughter and friendliness that ended these last two months of outdoor projections! Every Wednesday night, you might have noticed the crowd of people with folding chairs, small tables and blankets ready and waiting impatiently for this week’s movie, in the enchanting setting of the Dante park.

This eight year of the Ciné Park Dante ends on such a high note that we wanted to share this with you!

An unavoidable must for any movie fan.

Every week, more than 250 individuals would reunite during the sweet summer nights to view true masterpieces of Italian cinema as well as recent hits! This  diverse program has been possible thanks to our collaboration with the Italian Contemporary Film Festival (ICFF). The festival has for mission to encourage the value, appraisal and weight of Italian culture and what better location than the Dante parc, the heart of the Little Italy, to accomplish this objective? It has already been agreed that this collaboration is to grow and flourish for years to come.

Thanks to their support and our carefully targeted communications, the gathering has been able to shine throughout the greater Montreal area, which has encouraged montrealers to roam, discover and enjoy our neighbourhood’s specialities! Indeed, more than 31 000 people have been reached by our event on social media (Facebook, Instagram). The phenomenon has also been discussed in many digital medias such as : Nightlife.ca, Journal Metro and Narcity. This free press coverage has allowed us to promote the neighbourhood as well as the summer time program!

Prolonging the festivities

This year’s edition was particularly special since it scheduled nine screenings, which is more than double the usual number of movies in the park. This summer long project has been possible thanks to you! We would like to especially thank : Kinatex Physio Sports Jarry-Petite-Italie, Centre d’Impôt Marino and Pastificio Sacchetto for their implication in this public event.
