The Cinémathèque : 50 years of showcasing cinema


To meet the digital challenges, the Cinémathèque will upgrade its equipment and facilities to pursue its mission as the museum of the moving Image in Montréal.

To celebrate its 50th anniversary, the Cinémathèque québécoise presented a unique program, featuring a new permanent exhibition called Secrets et illusions, temporary exhibitions and retrospectives of the work of some of the greatest names in world cinema, including that of Orson Welles and André Forcier, and Les lumières, a permanent light installation by Michael Snow on the façade of its building, overlooking the Quartier des Spectacles.

Caroline Dhavernas, the event spokesperson, is a proud example of the new generation of artists who will be the guardians of Québec’s cinematic heritage.
