2018 Poster

The 2018 poster was designed by Stéphanie Cloutier, Graphic Designer at LEBLEU marketing, design and web, based on the magnificent work of art by artist by Frank Polson, Autumn Season

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

THE ARTIST

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. Polson has just recently begun collaborating with the Royal Canadian Mint on a special collection.
