In the realm of digital creation and production, the whole world has their eyes on Quebec, yet there is no tangible support currently in place to develop and grow these new writing practices. On the 15th of November 2013, the Groupe de travail sur les enjeux du cinéma québécois (GTEC) submitted their report on the future of cinema to the Minister of Culture, without significant mention of digital creation.
We are an informal group of creators, producers and broadcasters who were invited to participate to the consultation process. We believe that digital creation is a cultural industry in its own right, and that it should be part of our cultural landscape alongside its more traditional domains. In order to have a local, sustainable and global impact, we need to support new forms of storytelling now.
