A first for Main Film, the Meeting Series is a new monthly event that we are offering for free on various current issues and themes raised by independent cinema. For this new activity of 3 events, we have chosen the theme of Responsible Filmmaking.
Several professionals from the field will come and share their practices, visions and commitments to make their profession more fair and respectful of their environment. It is an invitation to discuss and reflect together on the cinema of tomorrow.

See you every 7th of the month during the fiction session (registration required)!

Meeting #2: Intimacy coordination

Intimacy coordination is a growing profession in the film industry that aims to supervise and adapt the shooting of intimate scenes in order to create a safe and serene environment around the actors. It is also about collaborating in a prevention work and facilitating the implementation of a respectful communication on the sets.
Discover the characteristics, background and challenges of this profession with Stéphanie Breton, one of the first intimacy coordinators in Quebec.
