Men for Sale also known by its French language title Hommes à louer (literally "Men for rent") is a 2008 documentary film by Canadian director Rodrigue Jean, about male prostitutes working in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The film was shot over a one-year period in Montreal's Gay Village.
The documentary follows the life of 11 male prostitutes over the course of a year, recounting their struggles to survive alcohol and drug-related addictions, abuse and stigmatization – and, their troubled pasts.
Trapped in a vicious circle of prostitution and drugs, they pursue their lives, realizing their prospects for the future are dim.
In 2009, the documentary was an official selection for:
- Festival du Nouveau Cinéma
- Festival d'Avignon (63rd season)
- Festival international du cinéma francophone en Acadie (FICFA) (23rd season)
- Atlantic Film Festival
