On May 22, 2016, the same day Xavier Dolan won the Grand Prix du jury at Cannes, Céline Dion was presented with the ICON Award at the Billboard Music Awards. Cultural events in 2016 includes Denis Villeneuve directing some of the biggest movies of the year as well as Yannick Nézet-Séguin being named music director of the Metropolitan Opera of New York. It’s also Catherine-Anne Toupin who saw her play Right Now win rave reviews in England, Marie Chouinard being appointed dance director of the Venice Biennale, and Anaïs Barbeau-Lavalette captivating us all with the power of her pen and remarkable sensitivity. Presented by André Robitaille and France Beaudoin, La revue culturelle 2016 is an exciting recap of the great images and moments to remember from 2016. Viewers will also enjoy some memorable encounters made especially for the occasion, like Robert Lepage (887) and Guylaine Tremblay (Encore une fois, si vous permettez). It’s a toast to Quebec culture and to those who help create it!
