Acclaimed organist Karl Mossakowski earned a standing ovation for his improvised accompaniment of the silent movie La Passion de Jeanne d’Arc during the Quebec City Film Festival (QCFF).

Place D’Youville is lit up. White chairs face a giant screen. A live orchestra plays film music. A red carpet covers the steps leading to the Palais Montcalm for the seventh annual Quebec City Film Festival (QCFF).
