Main Film is an artist center in independent cinematographic creation committed to support its community as whole, without any distinction.
Our strength is in our members. They are our essence.
Following the recent events, it seemed essential to offer a place so our members can express their feelings towards the discrimination they experience regarding their skin color, their origins, their sexual orientation, their gender, and share their reflections through this societal drama that takes place in all forms of rejection of one another.
Every month, Main Film will give place to its members that face discrimination so they can share with you their reflexions and thoughts.
Our fifth artist to contribute is Sabiha Merabet.
Because it’s the artists who carry both the role of representing society and making it evolve.
Sabiha wanted to share the 31 photos she took during the March Against Racism held in Montreal on June 7, 2020.
❝ Today, we were all concerned by this cause. Because it is easy to put a black square on social media and tell yourself that you have done your part. But we need a deeper reflection and it is with concrete actions that we will ALL get there. Thank you to everyone there for doing your part and for respecting the sanitary instructions. ❞
