Mireille Dansereau (b.1943 in Montreal) is a producer, director and script-writer. Despite having worked in dance for 18 years, Dansereau turned to film after receiving her diploma from the Université de Montréal. In 1967, she produced her first film Moi un jour. She then furthered her studies and obtained an MFA at London’s Royal College of Art. While in England, she produced Compromise (1968). Her experiments with video began with the Challenge for Change program from the NFB, for which she produced Les immigrants, and continued exploring this medium with Forum (1969). As an independant filmmaker, she helped to establish ACPAV, which produced her film La vie révée (1972), the first feature-length fictional film ever produced by a woman in Quebec.
