Movies on the big screen all year long

In addition to regularly screening restored feature films at major Québec film events, Éléphant has partnered with two major cultural institutions, the Cinémathèque québécoise in Montréal and the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec in Québec City, to show the films. Every month, Éléphant sur grand écran gives audiences a chance to experience the movies the way they were meant to be seen and to discover, or rediscover, the masterpieces of Québec cinema.

Internationally recognized expertise

Éléphant has quickly become known around the world as a player in the restoration and dissemination of heritage films. Movies restored by Éléphant have been screened at prestigious international festivals including Cannes, Lyon and New York. The restoration work was initially done by Technicolor Creative Services; today, the films are processed by MELS, which has rare expertise in the field. The work is carried out under the supervision of Éléphant codirectors Marie-José Raymond and Claude Fournier.
