Christian Mathieu Fournier has been working since 1998 as Photo Director. In 2004, his second documentary film, Make money, salut bonsoir !, won him the Audience Award and the Enviro Prize at the Portneuf Film Festival on the environment. He followed up with Léandre Bergeron, with hopeless conviction (2008), and in 2012, L'Ange des Grondines (Public Prize at the FFPE). In 2015, Nallua earned her a Special Jury Mention at the Babel Film Festival in Italy and the Best Documentary Award at the Percé International Film and Art Festival. Since then, the movie has been awarded a presentation in more than 12 national and international festivals.
Nadine Beaudet directed her first documentary LE COSAQUE ET LA GITANE in 2012: she won the Prix Pierre-et-Yolande-Perrault at Rendez-vous du cinéma québécois (2013). With THESE MEN OF PASSAGE (2015), she was part of the first cohort of the collective of 5 directors (5 shorts) initiated by the NFB and SPIRA which aimed to reintroduce very short documentary in the cinematographic landscape. His most recent film THE CHANT OF STARS (2016) selected by the International Documentary Film Festival in the Cevennes (France), unveils the unprecedented meeting of astronomy and music in a poetic and human narrative.
