The Genies’ French connection

Quebec films and their makers overpowered last night’s 25th annual Genie Awards, handily grabbing almost every major prize, including Best Picture for the quirky 2003 animated feature, Les Triplettes de Belleville. […]

The bitter irony of the night is that English Canada’s most ardent film buffs have likely never heard � let alone seen � many of the francophone winners, which are hugely popular in Quebec but virtually ignored in the rest of Canada. […]

The steady stream of victorious francophones onto the stage at Toronto’s Metro Convention Centre, emphasized the ever-widening gulf between Quebec’s booming film industry and its struggling English-Canadian counterpart.
