ANNUAL NATIONAL SALON DES REFUSÉS

Until 1863 the French Académie des Beaux Arts decided which artists received public exhibition. Any work, that strayed from realism, which defined “good art” at the time, was rejected. In 1863, the Académie was especially censorious, rejecting an unprecedented 2800 canvases. This bold statement caused such public outrage that the Emperor, Louis Napoleon, was forced to demand that the Académie display the rejected works in a separate exhibition. This new exhibition, the Salon des Refusés, finally garnered artists outside of the Académie’s canon the recognition they deserved. It is from this tradition that LIFT’s National Salon des Refusés emerged. Each year LIFT presents a non-curated selection of Canadian films that were passed over by the Toronto International Film Festival. The Salon is programmed through a lottery draw, that is, films and the order in which they are shown are determined by the draw.

Ladies and gentlemen – please welcome the films and the filmmakers of LIFT’s 12th Annual National Salon des Refusés!
