The Image Mill – Tribute to Norman McLaren - Animation Pioneer

The Image Mill

June 23 to September 1st

This architectural projection, produced and presented by Ex Machina and Robert Lepage, is the largest of its kind ever conceived.

In collaboration with

The Image Mill Projection Show’s Farewell

In collaboration with the National Film Board of Canada (NFB), the last edition of The Image Mill projection show, beginning in summer 2013, will take the form of a tribute to filmmaker Norman McLaren.

The innovative work he created at the NFB from 1941 to 1983 constitutes a major contribution to animation cinema, one that brought him international recognition. Over his long career, Norman McLaren received an impressive number of awards, including an Oscar for Neighbours and a Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival for Blinkity Blank.

Double Bill—or Triple! !

New for this year—attend Cirque du Soleil’s Les Chemins invisibles and The Image Mill in a single night. And on August 3, 7, 10, 14, 17, and 21 you can close out your night with a bang watching the fireworks of Les Grands Feux Loto-Québec.
