This is the option that gives access to all the films in the Winter 2022 program of the Quebec tour. Eighteen films for more than 4.5 hours shot in the four corners of the world. A 31-day viewing period allows you to go at your own pace. The viewing period ends on Saturday, February 19, 2022 at 11:45 pm. So,  whether you start watching your movies on January 21 or February 12, your viewing must be completed before 11:45 pm on February 19, 2022.

You’ll come away amazed, inspired and sometimes flabbergasted thanks to women and men who plunge us into worlds we’ll probably never set foot in. Suspended in the air, alert on polar water, on two wheels or on all fours, these adventurers trace their own paths thanks to their determination and their audacity.

The RED and BLUE programs offer a selection of films from the “BIG ADVENTURE” program.
