Mathieu Li-Goyette


Montreal, QC

Mathieu Li-Goyette is co-editor in chief of the French Canadian webzine Panorama-cinéma based in Montreal. He's mainly interested in national cinema, films from yesterday and today and believes in taking an historical approach of these to relocate them not in a chronological order, but by themes, genres and preoccupations. For him, film critics should not only "review" films on a daily basis, but also try to replace them in their historical/artistic current. By that, they will be able make sense out of images in a near future (if not now) invaded by too-much-images.
