Montreal documentary filmmaker and street photographer Ezra Soiferman ("Man of Grease", "Grass Fed”, “Last Game at The Forum”) has been selected as the first Artist in Residence at Tweed (, Canada's largest licensed medical cannabis producer.

As part of the year-long photography residency he'll be creating new photo series and ‘music photeos’. "The Walls of Montreal”, is the first project Ezra released as part of the Tweed residency.

Between 2013 and 2016, Ezra photographed over 1500 murals throughout the streets and alleys of Montreal.

Infinithéâtre’s The Unit is comprised of a group of seven wildly talented playwrights six of whom were each sponsored by a different English-language Québec theatre and one of whom was sponsored by a theatre in St. John’s Newfoundland.

The Unit reflects The English-Language Communities And Diversity Of Québec On Stages Across The Province.  Members take part in bi-monthly group dramaturgical sessions and in addition their projects also benefit from the one-on-one attention of a play dramaturge.
