Pointe-à-Callière’s immersive Generations MTL show is enjoying international recognition!

In May 2019, Pointe-à-Callière’s new multimedia show Generations MTL was recognized at the 2019 Muse Creative Awards. This international competition rewards professionals in the world of design and creativity for their innovative concepts or projects. The awards are given out each year by a jury made up of professionals from major agencies and various backgrounds all around the world.

Pointe-à-Callière and the multimedia production firm TKNL received a “Platinum” award in the “Experiential and Immersive / Live Experiences” category for their spectacular immersive show on the birthplace of Montréal. The Museum’s multimedia show stood out alongside such other prestigious winners as Walt Disney Concert Hall Dreams and NASA’s Data Gate artificial intelligence project.

It is worth recalling that the Generations MTL multimedia show is projected in a one-of-a-kind venue, across a 390-square-metre setting overlooking authentic archaeological remains. Pointe-à-Callière and TKNL worked together to bring the city’s story to life, combining technological prowess and artistic sensibility. The show plunges visitors into an impressive aural and visual experience, showing them just what makes Montréal such a distinctive hub for human, economic, and cultural interaction. Throughout the narrative—punctuated with lighting effects, animated sequences, and archival audio and video excerpts—, six Montrealers travel back in time to tell viewers about their Montréal and that of their ancestors.
