Media Night is the biggest night of the semester for CinCom students. It is an opportunity to connect with peers and guests, but is primarily an event where the student films and media-related projects are shared and judged by media experts and distinguished in several award categories—best fiction, best experimental movie, achievement in editing, achievement in sound, etc.

Velvet Terrorism: Pussy Riot’s Russia at MAC
Where: Museum of contemporary art of Montréal
When: October 25, 2023 to March 10, 2024
Pussy Riot is a feminist protest and performance art collective famous for the provocative political lyrics and actions to its punk allure. Their modus operandi, by which all protest art should be “desperate, sudden, and joyous,” aims to uncover the systematic injustice of its native Russia through aggressive surveillance, political imprisonment, and endless other means to restrain liberty of speech.
