Open letter: "Award for tolerance" hides story of discrimination

The following letter was sent by Montreal filmmaker Malclom Guy to the Rendez-Vous du Cinéma Québecois on 12 February: I accepted the invitation from the Rendez-Vous du Cinéma Québecois to join this year’s jury in good faith. But after examining in more detail the political and financial basis of the prize I must refuse to have my name associated with it. Behind this noble sounding “award for tolerance” hides a story of intolerance, division and discrimination.
