Expo 67 combined with the Montreal International Film Festival and presented more than 30 feature films at the Fair. The Festival was of note for the feature film "High," directed by Larry Kent, being banned by the Quebec Censor Board for "permissive love-making and crime," outraging the filmmakers in the competition. The winners of the competition, Alan King for "Warrendale," and Jean-Pierre Lefebvre for "Il ne Faut pas Mourir pour Ca," split the prize with Kent. The jury president Jean Renoir (mentioned in the snipe) joined with other attendees, such as Warren Beatty and Fritz Lang, in condemning the board's actions.
