Cinéma Public is committed to democratizing access to culture, encouraging creativity and facilitating meetings and discussions among works, artists and audiences.

This page provides an overview of the cultural outreach projects Cinéma Public has launched in order to achieve these goals.

Our cultural outreach projects

Le Cinéma Public à l’école

This spring, Cinéma Public is pleased to be working with two primary schools, École primaire Sainte-Cécile, in the heart of Villeray, and École primaire Lajoie, in Outremont, to encourage students to discover the different facets of cinema, including career options and the medium’s different genres (animation, documentary, fiction).

The workshops offer students the opportunity to watch Quebec-made short films and take part in hands-on activities. These moments of discovery and learning are accompanied by discussions between the students and guest artists.

Cinéma Public’s aim for the workshops is to inspire and nurture a passion for filmmaking as early as primary school, and to initiate and train the next generation of cinephiles and filmmakers.

Le Cinéma Public à l’école is made possible by the financial support of the Gouvernement du Québec.

Le Club derrière la caméra

Since the fall of 2021, Cinéma Public and Spectrum Productions have been running a series of film workshops to make space for autistic femme youth.

Le Club derrière la caméra guides the group in the use of filmmaking tools. In this safe space, our aim is to offer participants the opportunity to create, have fun and make new friends.

This project is funded by the Entente sur le développement culturel de Montréal between the Ville de Montréal and the Gouvernement du Québec and by the Caisse Desjardins des Versants du mont Royal.
