Mel Hoppenheim
(1937 – 2022)

Mel Hoppenheim, LLD 09 — Canadian business leader, film-industry entrepreneur and namesake donor to our cinema school — passed away on July 27, 2022. He was 84. The founder of Panavision Canada was also the driving force behind MELS state-of the-art film production studios. Mr. Hoppenheim worked tirelessly throughout his career to establish Montreal’s reputation as an international hub for film production. In 1997, he gave $1 million to Concordia’s Faculty of Fine Arts to support students enrolled in film programs. In recognition of his generosity, the Department of Cinema was renamed the Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema that same year.
