Festival starts in


At the Saint-Félicien racetrack, engines are running hot and the excitement has reached a fever pitch. With its thunderous soundtrack, jarring backfires and choking clouds of smoke, Martin Bureau’s Hell Runs on Gasoline! takes us deep inside a chaotic battle to the finish. Race cars hit the track, accidents pile up and the flames of burning engines wreak havoc—an infernal vision that soon dissipates into an eerily silent cemetery of abandoned carcasses. This film is part of the 2014 edition of the 5 Shorts Project, created by the National Film Board of Canada and produced in conjunction with Spirafilm, a Quebec cooperative dedicated to independent cinema.

Screens as part of the FRENCH LANGUAGE DOCUMENTARY SHORTS SERIES 1 on Thursday, January 21, 2016 at 11:00 am at Vermilionville.
