Bill Bestiole

In partnership with L’association franco-culturelle de Yellowknife


Victor Vermette, aka Bill Bestiole, is not your average entomologist. Since 2003, he has been fighting the pro-bug battle and changing the way Canadian children perceive insects, arachnids and our other tiny neighbours. Vermette has dedicated his life to the popularization of entomology, and strives to help kids overcome their phobias by confronting his creepy, crawly companions head-on. His humour and enthusiasm are a hit with kids of all ages, many of whom find themselves transformed after an encounter with Vermette and his friends.

Jasper (film)

To all penguins, the world is just an immense span of water and icebergs - blue and white and beyond that, nothing. All penguins that is, except one, Jasper! His insatiable curiosity leads him aboard a ship where he embarks on an incredible journey into the great unknown. With the help of Emma, the captain’s courageous daughter, and Kakapo the parrot, it’s up to Jasper to sabotage the sinister schemes of evil Dr. Block. But will he be able to prove to his fellow penguins that there’s much more to the world than they ever imagined?
