Biography

Graduate in film production at Concordia University, where he won the Mel Hoppenheim Award for his musical "The Flower of Age", Pascal Plante continues his career as a director with Némésis Films, box of production of which he is the co-founder. Pascal sees himself first and foremost as an avid moviegoer. This sickly (and communicative) cinephile, transparent in his work, is channeled every week in the podcast Point de Vues, ​​entirely dedicated to cinema. Pascal Plante produced the daring web series "Les Jaunes", originally broadcast online on tou.tv and then reworked in feature film for his festival tour.
