About Éléphant: The Memory of Québec Cinema
Éléphant: The Memory of Québec Cinema is a large-scale project to digitize, restore, preserve and make accessible Québec’s feature film heritage, fully funded by Quebecor. Since its inception in 2007, Éléphant has restored more than 240 movies, which are now available on its website, on Videotron’s illico video-on-demand service (channel 900) and on Helix. The films are also available, in the original version with English subtitles, on iTunes Canada, Apple TV and in all countries where French or English is an official language. As well, more than 50 of the movies are available in Spanish-speaking countries with Spanish subtitles. The Éléphant website at www.elephantcinema.quebec contains the largest existing database and information bank on Québec cinema.
Éléphant: The Memory of Québec Cinema is a philanthropic endeavour from which Quebecor derives no financial benefit. Aside from a small amount to cover a portion of the platform’s operating costs, all revenues from distribution of the movies goes to the rights holders and the filmmakers.
