Cinémathèque québécoise

The Cinémathèque québécoise.

The Cinémathèque québécoise is a film conservatory in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Founded in 1963, its mission is to "preserve and document film and television heritage in order to make it available to an ever-growing and diversified public."[1]

The Cinémathèque's collections include over 35,000 films from all eras and countries, 25,000 television programmes, 28,000 posters, 600,000 photos, 2,000 pieces of historical equipment, 15,000 scripts and production documents, 45,000 books, 3,000 magazine titles, thousands of files as well as objects, props and costumes.[1]

The Cinémathèque complex was extensively redesigned from 1994 to 1997 by the architectural firm of Saucier + Perrotte.[2] Awards for the design included the 1999 Governor General’s Award for Architecture.[3] It is located at 355 De Maisonneuve Boulevard East, in the city's Quartier Latin, which is also part of the new Quartier des Spectacles cultural district.

The Institut national de l'image et du son is located next door.[4]
