The Mange Un Poulpe Festival (LE MUP) is committed to the celebration of the vibrant community of short film, video, and animation artists on the beautiful island of Montreal. We hope to build ties between emerging and established professionals, and provide an arena where all short filmmakers, including students, can screen their films in public and support their fellow colleagues. Our ultimate goal is to connect short filmmakers to a broader audience in order to grow the film industry.
