23rd First Peoples’ Festival opening night

The Land Insights team wishes to thank everyone who attended the First Peoples’ Festival opening night.

We were able to count on the presence and support of Mr Ghislain Picard, AFNQL Chief, Ms Élisabeth Larouche, Ministre déléguée aux Affaires autochtones and several other guests of the films and videos segment of our festival.

Pierre Bastien presented us the team without whom Paroles Amérikoises could not have been made. L’Enfance déracinée by Réal Junior Leblanc charmed the audience as well. Umätu, le chant du Notou, a three-minute short from New Caledonia, was a delightful discovery.

A full house at the Grande Bibliothèque auditorium, performance by Kathia Rock and Jean Frédérick Messier at the Cinémathèque québécoise bistro, all in all a splendid evening.

Once again, many thanks to all of you! Without you, First Peoples’ Festival could not have become what it is.

Every one on our team wishes you an excellent festival!
