Canadian Costume Designer Monique Prudhomme joined post-secondary students and faculty to discuss her remarkable work on the Terry Gilliam-directed The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus (2009), for which she received an Academy Award® nomination and was honoured with the Costume Designers Guild award for "Best Fantasy Costume Design". Costumes designed by Prudhomme for The Imaginarium were featured in the exhibition "Otherwordly: The Art of Canadian Costume Design". The exhibit was featured in the Canadian Film Gallery at TIFF Bell Lightbox, in partnership with The Canadian Alliance of Canadian Film & Television Costume Arts & Design (CAFTCAD). During the Master Class, Prudhomme outlined the costume designer's multi-faceted job, describing her creative process, design inspirations, and methodology in executing The Imaginarium's wondrous and exotic designs. Other topics included: the essential relationship between a film's narrative and its costumes, as well as the relationship between the film's director and its costume designer. Post-secondary students and faculty participated in a Q&A session following Prudhomme's lecture. This Higher Learning event held on November 15, 2011 at TIFF Bell Lightbox.

Hosted by Theresa Scandiffio, Senior Manager of Adult Learning at TIFF Bell Lightbox.
