Quebec cinema is exported and seduced. The film December 23 by director Miryam Bouchard did not leave the jurors indifferent at the 26th edition of the international comedy film festival in Alpe d'Huez, France.
Quebec comedy de Noël, in which the destinies of strangers intertwine during the holiday season, was awarded the jury’s favorite prize.

Such success outside Quebec was not guaranteed , taking into account the cultural and language differences that exist between the Belle Province and Old France.
Recall that in Quebec, the film crossed the 2 million mark and quickly established itself at the top of the Quebec box office in 2022.
