The Forgotten Treasure by Tom Ehrhardt

On the occasion of the commemoration of German reunification on October 3, FIFA and the Goethe-Institut Montréal are pleased to present Tom Ehrhadt’s documentary The Forgotten Treasure (Der Vergessene Schatz), which brilliantly highlights the audacity of artists who fought to work freely at a time when art was ruled by the socialist realist movement, under the yoke of the GDR government.
In partnership with the Goethe-Institut Montréal.

A virtual centre for all the arts!

All year long, ARTS.FILM streams more than a hundred films to be discovered and viewed directly on your computer, tablet, or phone or on APPLE TV©.

Discover originals!

The ARTS.FILM catalogue is composed of films that you’re not likely to see in the theatre or on TV. The platform offers a rare opportunity to stream films — from Québec, Canada, and other countries — that are otherwise subject to limited release and short runs. Film lovers can choose from among an eclectic selection that covers the wide spectrum of arts, culture, and creativity. Documentaries on art, fiction films, biographies, recordings of live shows, art performances, and art videos are accessible anytime across Canada. ARTS.FILM decompartmentalizes talents and stirs them together.

Canadian content

ARTS.FILM pays special attention to Canadian content: in both its regular programs and events, it offers creators a technological showcase, increased security of their content, and better discoverability.

A variety of views

ARTS.FILM’s mission is to reflect a diversity of cultures, genres, points of view, practices, and more. The collections and programs bring into dialogue artists from various communities, belonging to visible, cultural, sexual, and gender minorities, as well as representatives of First Nations and Inuit communities. A non-profit initiative, ARTS.FILM redistributes receipts equitably to artists and rights holders. A significant share is returned directly to the arts sector.
