City of Genk

Manitoba made a comprehensive image-building movie introducing the city of Genk, using a blend of documentary and fiction. The movie consists of four separate chapters: this is the one on the reconversion of its economy.


Because the Genk economy used to be all about coal mining. These days, Genk is home to professionals in a lot of different walks of life, from creative to high tech industries. We visualized that drastic turn of economic events using creative visuals – have a look!


The other three segments of this large project dealt with the city’s tourist facilities, its diverse ethnic make-up and finally there was this segment on education and social services.
