A Breton in the land of Quebec, but of course. An engineer in the land of cinema, why not? After arriving to Montreal in 1994 as an engineer in aeronautics, I started to write for 24 Images in 1995, for ICI in 1998... and then for the Festival du nouveau cinema in 1999. And such is my calling: a film $$ critic with an eye onto the world, a smuggler of gazes, passionate about rising to the call of seeing and hearing in new ways, beholding the whisper as outcry... Riding the same momentum, I transitioned into programming in 2000, and editorship of 24 Images in 2005, not in order to play judge but to defend—inch by inch, work by work—a certain kind of off-the-beaten-path cinema, that which is championed by the Festival du nouveau cinema, and more specifically, that which is embodied by short films, the laboratories of free form and ideas.
