Subjects and Projects

Monthly film series now at the Cinémathèque québécoise

Beginning in September 2023, the Cinémathèque québécoise (335 De Maisonneuve Blvd. East, H2X 1K1) will showcase the richness and diversity of contemporary German cinema once a month with feature films, documentaries, bold and entertaining productions by established and emerging directors.

This autumn's program highlights music and myths, as well as legendary operas. The films presented are distinguished by their soundtracks, which give these works a driving force, an individual and atmospheric rhythm, and become, through this conceptual quality, tools for creating images and imaginations.

Radio Around The World

One hundred years ago, in October 1923, the very first German radio station went on the air in Berlin. On this occasion, we celebrate radio, in retrospectives and personal radio memoirs by international artists and authors!
