In September 2017, the Cinémathèque québécoise launched an initiative dedicated to the creation and exhibition of shared assets related to Quebec and Canadian cinema. The purpose is to ensure that the data and content conserved and produced by the institution for more than 50 years would be available and usable to all.

With a view to collaboration, the Cinémathèque seeks to promote the sharing of knowledge and the discoverability of works and artists, with the aim of inspiring new creative activities.

Since August 2018, we have benefitted from a Canada Council for the Arts grant that allows us to extend and expand this project until 2021, giving a valuable boost to the visibility of our cinematic heritage.

After collaborating with more than 100 artists and citizens in the last two years to improve the presence of Quebec cinema on Wikimedia Foundation platforms, particularly the Wikipedia free encyclopedia, the Cinémathèque québécoise announced, as part of the innovative Savoirs Communs du Cinéma initiative, new goals for strengthening our culture’s representation online.

Professional meetings

Professional meetings co-organized with the Université de Montréal, aimed at sharing knowledge and experience in arts and the re-use of cultural content, will be held every two months until June.

The Cinémathèque's Wiki workshops

Efforts to raise the profile of Quebec cinema on Wikimedia platforms will continue actively, since the Cinémathèque uses the platforms to document both its screenings of Quebec films as they happen and the careers of filmmakers who attend the Cinémathèque’s Sommets du cinéma d'animation.
