Being at the confluence of both French and the English traditions, Montreal has developed a unique and distinguished cultural face. Montreal is Canada's centre for French language television productions, radio, theatre, film, multimedia and print publishing. As a North American city, Montreal shares many cultural characteristics with the rest of the continent. It has a tradition of popular jazz and rock music and has produced much talent in the fields of visual arts, theatre, music, and dance.
Another distinctive characteristic of Montreal cultural life is to be found in the animation of its downtown, particularly during summer, when Montreal flourishes enlivened by festivals, street fairs and innumerable terrace cafés.
The city's largest festival is the Just for Laughs comedy festival, which is the largest in the world of its kind. Other popular festivals include the Montreal International Jazz Festival, the Francofolies and the Montreal Fireworks Festival.
