Jean Pierre Desrosiers, a Remarkable Journey

This short film is a tribute to patron of the arts Jean Pierre Desrosiers. Well known in Montreal’s cultural community for his generous and enthusiastic support of performing arts organizations, Desrosiers’ inspired leadership of several major fundraising campaigns has helped many organizations to flourish - from music ensembles to theatre and dance companies, and even a circus! This film documents his selfless contribution to dozens of organizations, artists and poets and presents a career man with a gift for reconciling the seemingly disparate worlds of business and art.

Produced by the NFB in co-operation with the National Arts Centre and the Governor General's Performing Arts Awards Foundation on the occasion of the 2013 Governor General's Performing Arts Awards.
