This event will be followed by a discussion between professors from the three universities, the students, and Eugenio Carelli and Nicolas Demers-Stoddart, two partners at Provencher_Roy.

“We are overjoyed this year to offer students an exclusive screening of the film Le Louvre Abu Dhabi, création d’un musée universel. This event allows us to champion two causes dear to our hearts : the valorization of creation and the promotion of education, both of which Provencher_Roy has been committed to since its inception. We believe it is crucial to support the arts community, and our partnership with FIFA is in keeping with this conviction,” explains Lucie Bouthillette, partner and VP Marketing, Communications and Business Development at Provencher_Roy.

In conjunction with the screenings, a number of special events will be held all throughout the festival. For full details on programming and activities, visit the FIFA Website.
