2016 My First Opera Gala

Since September, students from Barclay and Notre-Dame-de-la-Paix Elementary Schools explored the world of opera as part of a project orchestrated by Youth Fusion. Inspired by historical figures, they rose to the challenge to write their own librettos,  put into music and performed by students from the University of Montreal.

Students presented May 13, 2016, the result of their hard work: the operas Catherine de Valois : le voyage d’une vie.

Congratulations to all the young participants and thank you to our valuable partners: the Azrieli Foundation, the Opera of Montreal, Commission scolaire de Montréal, Commission scolaire Marguerite-Bourgeoys and the University of Montreal .

Gala CLIP 2016

CLIP introduces students to the world of cinema and provides them with the opportunity to produce a short film. With the help of coordinators who are university film students, they learn about scriptwriting, film terminology, handling a camera, film industry trades, and skills such as acting, working with sound, lighting, etc. The students essentially get to experience every phase of the movie production process, while also taking on specific roles as members of the production team.

Since September, they worked hard at writing, producing and directing 30 short films of 3 minutes in contention at CLIP Gala held May 12, 2016, at Salle Pierre-Mercure.

Four young students from the Innalik school in Inukjuak (Nunavik) were honoured today for their short film Una Unikkaavut. At once a gripping cry from the heart, an ode to hope and an intimate portrait of and tribute to the memory of their friend Sarah Patsauq, this film by Lucy Gailey Nappatuk, Bobby Idlout, Sarah Naqtai and Peter Nutaraluk speaks to a harsh reality: the suicide rate among Nunavik’s Inuit kids, among the highest in the world, and 11 times above the national average. Their message is about to reach far beyond what the four budding filmmakers could have imaged: it is going to be screened throughout the month of August in several independent movie theatres across Quebec, including Cinéma du Parc, Cinéma Beaubien, Cinéma Pine, Clap and Maison du Cinéma, as the opening film before the feature presentation.

Congratulations to all the participants, felicitations to all the winners and thank you to our partners: the Azrieli Foundation, Cineplex, JA DeSève Foundation, the City of Montreal, the Government of Quebec, Concordia University, Université Laval, University de Montreal, UQAM and UQAT.
