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.

Mylène Corbeil

Mylène Corbeil completed her Bachelor’s degree in Cultural and Media Production Strategies at UQÀM in 2013. She is also a graduate of the Cinéma program at L’inis (2015 cohort), producer profile. After graduating from L’inis, she founded La Créative Films with her associate, Estelle Champoux. She has produced eighteen (18) short films, nine (9) of which were produced within La Créative Films. Mylène is a producer who likes first and foremost to invest in content and to accompany filmmakers through the various stages and turmoil of creation. When it comes to choosing a project, she is driven by the veracity, authenticity and depth of the characters and the angle with which a subject is approached. She is an energetic young woman who is passionate about her craft. Thus, to put a script in her hands is to know that it will be carried, loved and defended as much as by its creators.

Considering the environmental impact of audiovisual productions, La Créative Films has decided to undertake a sustainable development approach and to implement eco-responsible practices in its audiovisual productions. The first project to benefit from this green shift was the short film “Le dernier rhinocéros” by Guillaume Harvey shot in July 2021.

Over the years, Valérie has also distinguished herself through her commitment and passion for philanthropy with various social organizations, notably through her position as director of the events department of the Fondation du CHUM (Centre Hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal). She joined the Bureau du cinéma et de la télévision du Québec (BCTQ) in 2020, where she currently manages the activities of the Audiovisual Cluster Secretariat.
