2018 Poster

The PAINTING

“The moose is on everyone’s lips in our region in the fall…like the Film Festival!!!!

According to an Anishnabe Seven Grandfathers legend, the moose is a symbol of respect, as is the buffalo in the western part of the country. This animal respects its environment and earned the respect of ancestors by its ability to feed a whole clan and provide tools and all kinds of useful objects, because all of it was used.”

― Frank Polson

Frank Polson is an Algonquin artist from the Long Point First Nation Community, in Winneway, Témiscamingue. He has dedicated many years of his life to developing a style that respects tradition while remaining contemporary. His work is well-known and appreciated in the region and beyond our borders.
