OPTIMISTA: CINÉCONFERENCES FOR A HOPEFUL TOMORROW

A UNIQUE SERIES OF MULTIDISCIPLINARY CULTURAL EXPERIENCES FEATURING WORLD-RENOWNED KEYNOTE
SPEAKERS, AWARD-WINNING FILMS & LOCAL ARTISTS

Montreal non-profit collective Yellow Pad Sessions (YPS) has announced its latest cultural venture: the multidisciplinary art event series OPTIMISTA. This unique ambitious project intends to inspire and encourage hope in uncertain times through a celebration of the spirit. The series takes place over 4 themed nights spanning late 2022 to early 2023.

Courage, Compassion, Love, and Community are each represented on dedicated evenings of multidisciplinary art, including award-winning and critically-acclaimed films, performers and keynote speakers. Organizers have put together an incredible program using all the experience of YPS’ earlier venture, the United Nations Association Film Festival, which the local non-profit first brought to Montreal in 2019.
