PROJECTS
OF THE CANADIAN CULTURAL CENTRE

The Canadian Cultural Centre presents cultural programming that showcases the most innovative Canadian contemporary art, focussing on the visual arts, music and cinema.

Canadian, French and international experts also contribute to this programming. It takes into account the priorities of the Government of Canada and is elaborated in order to promote the Canadian cultural scene through collaborations with institutions, private entities, associations and festivals.

The Canadian Cultural Centre develops its own programming and is also involved in outside programming, these two aspects of its cultural commitment being closely related.

VISUAL ARTS

Submitting a project

The Canadian Cultural Centre conceives and coproduces three exhibitions a year. These exhibitions are organized by the centre’s exhibitions curator or guest curators from Canadian, French and international public institutions. The exhibitions reflect the diversity of Canadian contemporary artistic creation and are often linked to partnerships that maximize its visibility and impact.

The Canadian Cultural Centre does not accept speculative proposals or unsolicited project submissions.

CINEMA

Submitting a film or project

The Canadian Cultural Centre presents a dozen film screenings a year. These screenings are aimed at both professionals and the general public. Most of this programming is dedicated to short films. The programming is developed under the artistic direction of a guest programmer and conceived in relation to important French and Canadian film festivals. The rest of the programming is mainly focussed on documentaries and films about art. The Canadian Cultural Centre’s film programming is linked to events taking place in France.

Filmmakers, producers, agents, distributors and directors and/or festival programmers may submit a project containing the technical specifications of their film and if possible a link for viewing the film or a presentation of a festival accompanied by a covering letter.

MUSIC

Submitting a project

The Canadian Cultural Centre presents a dozen concerts/showcases a year. These concerts/showcases are aimed at both professionals and the general public. They give Canadian artists or groups the opportunity to present a mini concert (duration: 60 minutes). Certain concerts are directly linked to festivals or Parisian events, such as the Nuit Boréale as part of the Fête de la Musique and the international festival Jazzy Colors. The programming aims to make a wide variety of musical genres (rock, folk, classical, jazz, electronic, vocal, instrumental, etc.) heard and to promote the most innovative Canadian music.

The artist selection process is managed by the Association Québécoise de l’Industrie du Disque, du Spectacle et de la Vidéo (ADISQ) and the Canadian Independent Music Association (CIMA).
