RENDEZ-VOUSDirected by YAN GIROUX

Montréal’s Olympic Park is a fascinating architectural structure explored by two drones on a quest for the unknown. Between the world of insects (the Insectarium of Montréal), animals (the Biodôme of Montréal) and space (the Plantarium Rio Tinto Alcan), we are spectators along for the visual and audio ride taken at the Espace pour la vie.

The Olympic Stadium is a source of fascination for Yan Giroux who was inspired by the shot by ttaavvii to pay tribute to this Montréal symbol that soon celebrates its 40th anniversary. The perfect occasion to take a fresh look at the structure and get inside its shell.

TTYLDirected by IOURI PHILIPPE PAILLÉ

TTYL tells the story of a photographer with a unique perspective on Montréal. His vivid trajectory through the Montréal night reveals a sensitive romantic. A visual and aural exploration shot entirely at night using an anamorphic lense, that reveals the city to us through his eyes, lens and ears. A play on light and contrast, set to the electro beats of the group Le Matos.

A photo posted by Joel Fernandez (@urbansniper514) on

The photo taken by Urbansniper514 instantly caught Iouri’s eye, who after broader explorations on the photographer’s Instagram account, developed his vision and character. The light at the heart of Montréal, and the night through the eyes of the photographer and his lens. A romantic interpretation, from a young eccentric and marginal Montréaler.

HUITDirected by MATHIEU GRIMARD

What makes us love Montréal? This is the question that Mathieu Grimard asked eight Montréalers. Each subject is presented from behind a glass surface, as they tell us stories that come from Montréal places while the glass takes us to the city’s places with a link to their history. A documentary approach with a minimalist effect that plays on the strong relationship that develops between places and people.

The photo taken by Fleurde.lys, an exterior point of view of a typically Montréal scene, immediately resonated with Mathieu’s approach. An image that opens on a human Montréal story while positioning the place as the central character.

In the form of a diptych in movement that resonates with the #MTLmoments from xim_sauriol, different portraits are the epitome of a summer day. Minimalist shots that are fresh and surrealist guide us one after one through stylised scenes featuring a group of young Montréalers.
