1 May 2018 Manon Barbeau, Compagne des arts et des lettres du Québec
Having authored hundreds of screenplays and made dozens of award-winning documentaries (including Les enfants de Refus Global and Un cri au bonheur), Manon Barbeau has an outstanding cinematographic track record, in addition to an equally impressive record of social commitment.

She also co-founded Wapikoni Mobile, a film and musical studio geared towards First Nations youth that works with UNESCO in an advisory capacity.

Manon Barbeau was appointed to the Ordre des arts et des lettres du Québec at a special awards ceremony on May 28, 2018.

The Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec would like to thank the Caisse de la Culture and Le Devoir, which partnered for the award of this honour.
