The Montréal F/X
The visual effects industry is a fast-growing sector. Feature films, television series and animation projects all make use of increasingly sophisticated special effects. In 2014, no less than 35 Hollywood companies drew upon the talents of Montréal-based creators. With over $100 million in local contracts, the sector “effects” some real value here!
Held for two days in June, as part of the Digital Spring series, Effects MTL was an international business conference that drew 800 people from the industry. Workshops, networking events, research seminars and a job fair were all on the program. The event was the first of its kind.
By positioning Montréal as a leader in the field, Effects MTL aimed to consolidate the Québec industry, encourage high-level collaborations and raise the international profile of its professionals. This first edition met the challenge brilliantly.
