NFB renews its three-year co-operation and collaboration agreement with QEPC and ELAN to help strengthen Quebec’s English-language audiovisual sector and culture
From left to right: On June 13, 2019, Kirwan Cox (Executive Director, QEPC), Claude Joli-Coeur (Commissioner, NFB), Bettina Forget (President, ELAN) and Guy Rodgers (Executive Director, ELAN) renew the National Film Board of Canada’s three-year co-operation and collaboration agreement with the Quebec English-language Production Council (QEPC) and the English Language Arts Network (ELAN) to help strengthen Quebec’s English-language audiovisual sector and culture. First signed in 2015, it’s still the first such agreement between a public cultural institution and the official-language minority groups in Quebec—and part of a broader commitment by the NFB to English and French linguistic-minority communities across Canada.
