Germany is one of the most attractive international markets for Québec artists, in part because of the quality of the country’s cultural infrastructure. Contemporary Québec culture enjoys a reputation for originality and the avant-garde in Germany and is sought after by programmers and the public alike. Over the years, Québec has established itself as a major German cultural partner by participating, among others, in the Frankfurt Book Fair, Düsseldorf’s International Contemporary Dance Fair and various showcase events, especially in the film industry.
