WHO ARE WE?
The Association du Cinéma Québécois Émergent is a non-profit organization whose mission is to stimulate the Quebec film industry by highlighting the filmmakers of tomorrow.
The Festival Émergence, powered by ACQÉ (Association du Cinéma Québécois Émergent), is a celebration of emerging Quebec filmmakers. The festivities include special screenings, workshop-conferences, unifying events and more. The official selection is made up of short films made by artists aged 30 and under.
The festival is closed by the EMERGENCE Gala, where the finalist films of the festival are screened and where the winning productions are rewarded with an award ceremony in front of the general public. The goal of this evening is to offer great visibility to emerging artists (red carpet publicized, projection of their works in front of the general public, etc.), for the cultural benefit of the Quebec film industry.
At the Association du Cinéma Québécois Émergent, we believe in the talent of emerging filmmakers and wish to offer them a professional environment that allows them to be recognized by their peers in order to promote their integration into the film industry.
The best filmmakers
We present the short films of the best emerging Quebec filmmakers.
A fair system
We allow filmmakers to gain visibility just based on their work. Whether you are a student or not, that doesn't change anything for us.
By young people, for young people
We put ourselves in your shoes.
A publicized gala
Because young people also deserve a professional gala.
