PALM Festival

PARTICIPATE IN THE FESTIVAL

2025 Edition

Participate in the 2025 edition

The 2025 edition of the PALM Festival promises to be the biggest yet! More than 15 performances will be staged across Quebec, in new regions such as Abitibi-Témiscamingue, and even outside Quebec, in New Brunswick!

In addition to local short films, the Festival is reinventing itself by integrating an international component featuring films from outside Quebec. The aim of the Festival is to showcase fly fishing of all kinds, and to raise awareness of our territories and the players involved in the fishing and video industry.

Short Film Category

Are you interested in presenting a short film at the 2025 PALM Festival? It's already time to apply.

A RENOWNED FESTIVAL, PRICELESS VISIBILITY

Today, given the festival’s reputation, being part of the official selection serves as a genuine springboard for videographers hoping for new opportunities. Many past contestants talk about professional opportunities that have come about because of their participation in the festival.

The popularity of PALM is now spreading beyond the world of fishing. In fact, the last edition of the festival has sparked the interest of the media: Saumon Quebec has given a dozen interviews in relation to the festival and the winner of the short film category, Jérôme Charest along with a member of our team, went on the Salut Bonjour Week-end show, which has more than 700,000 viewers.
