Repêchage

Repêchage

The Repêchage initiative, launched in 2015 by the NFB’s Documentary Studio in collaboration with UQAM, allows graduates of UQAM’s School of Media (École des médias) to produce their first professional film at the NFB.


For the first edition of the Repêchage initiative, three “star students” majoring in cinema at UQAM were selected by producer Colette Loumède. The trio, composed of Loïc Darses (director), Charlotte Lacoursière (director of photography) and Philippe Lefebvre (editor), created the film La fin des terres (Where the Land Ends).
