Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema investigates and develops cinema as a means of artistic expression. Its programs aim to graduate filmmakers, film animators, and scholars who have a rich appreciation of the artistic and cultural potential of the medium, and also of its history and traditions. Students are exposed to the possibilities of both digital and analog technologies, and the School’s scholarly and artistic community celebrates its celluloid heritage and participates in the construction of the cinema of the future.
School programs -always evolving- embrace diversity, both in artistic formats and in the cultural values espoused through the study, creation, and dissemination of the cinema. The School's mission is inseparable from its commitment to the relevance and responsibility of its activities to the community, understood as being rooted here in Montreal and Quebec, throughout Canada, and internationally

Main Film is a center for artists founded in 1982, whose mandate is to support independent filmmakers in finding their artistic voices and cinematographic visions through practice and artistic enrichment, whatever the experience level, chosen medium, technique, or context of distribution. Through their various activities offered, Main Film aims to accompany filmmakers in defining themselves as artists and to encourage the emergence of new cinematographic voices.
For this, we operate on two complementary levels and propose to filmmakers:
- to free themselves from material and financial constraints, which limit creativity, the creation itself and practice
- to enrich themselves artistically alongside recognized artists and facilitate entry into their field
We offer our material resources and contacts, as well as a space dedicated to creation and a friendly atmosphere.
The accompanied artist is able to improve their practice, refine their auteur filmmaking vision, experiment and explore their craft. We wish to aid in the emergence of filmmakers with a unique artistic style and approach, in enriching, renewing and diversifying the cultural landscape through strong and bold works.
