A DIAMANT EMBEDDED IN THE CULTURAL LIFE OF QUÉBEC
From the very first brainstorming for Le Diamant, the Ex Machina team felt it was essential that it become a centre for presenting local talent. That’s why Le Diamant is proud to have cultural partners like the Festival de cinéma de la ville de Québec and the Carrefour international de théâtre.
Led by artistic director Robert Lepage, Ex Machina creates, produces and disseminates multidisciplinary artistic works. The company brings together creators from several fields of activity and offers a broad range of artistic production. Ex Machina mainly develops its shows in the city of Quebec, then presents them abundantly in Quebec, Canada and elsewhere in the Americas, Europe, Asia and Oceania.
CARREFOUR INTERNATIONAL DE THÉÂTRE DE QUÉBEC
Being both a festival and a producer, the Carrefour international de théâtre is a meeting point for artists, arts professionals and the public. We work in close collaboration with the theatre community by being a complement and a partner in making theatre and creation thrive.
The idea of a carrefour, a crossroads, comes to life within the idea of meeting and opening to the other. The Carrefour encourages a dialog between art and society and offers to the public occasions to discover, exchange and express. At the Carrefour, we challenge ourselves to use the festival as a way to multiply direct contacts between citizens, arts and artists and to welcome those who don’t necessarily have an easy access to arts and culture.
FESTIVAL D’OPÉRA DE QUÉBEC
FESTIVAL DE CINÉMA DE LA VILLE DE QUÉBEC (FCVQ)
Founded in 2011, the Quebec City Film Festival (QCFF) is a non-profit organization that strives to offer film enthusiasts from Quebec and visitors from outside the province and abroad a major film event similar to other iconic international film festivals. It is a renowned and recognised platform that screens regional and international productions of new and original films. The QCFF also supports local and regional emerging artists by providing them with a showcase to present their works that attracts major media exposure.
TALENT FROM HERE AND BEYOND ON THE SILVER SCREEN
Le Diamant welcomes moviegoers and film buffs during the Festival de cinéma de la ville de Québec. An ambitious, accessible and inclusive festival in Quebec City, the FCVQ puts the focus more on celebrating cinema theaters than the films themselves. The red carpet is rolled out for everyone, whether it’s for an art film, a popular screening or an independent film.
MULTIFACETED THEATRE IN AN EXCEPTIONAL PLACE
Joyously eclectic and deeply contemporary, the Carrefour international de théâtre is the prominent theatre festival in Quebec City. From the end of May until early June, the festival takes over several parts of town, most notably for its site-specific ambulatory theatre experience Où tu vas quand tu dors en marchant? Le Diamant will be one of the hosts of this theatrical festival.
