Chloé Robichaud

Director | Screenwriter

Chloe Robichaud, screenwriter and director, already has an established career. In 2013, she is for the second year in a row in the official selection of the Cannes Film Festival with her first feature film, Sarah Prefers to Run. In 2012, her film Herd Leader was also presented in Cannes, nominated for the Palme d’Or for short films. Both were screened in many international festivals. In 2016, her film Boundaries, which explores the life of women politicians, was selected at the TIFF and presented at the opening of the Quebec City Film Festival. The film won the prestigious “New Directors” award from the Seattle International Film Festival. This Quebec and Newfoundland co-production features an impressive cast: Macha Grenon, Emily VanCamp, Nathalie Doummar, Alexandre Landry, Yves Jacques and Rémy Girard.  Chloé is also the creator of the webseries Féminin/Féminin, which, since its launch in 2014, has received international acclaims, more than 1 million views and 2 Gémeaux Awards. She directed episodes of TROP, TV series starring Evelyne Brochu and Virginie Fortin, earning a 2018 Gémeaux Award nomination in the director/comedy category. She has written and directed nearly a dozen short films and thirty commercials, in addition to music videos.

Her latest film Delphine had a strong start. It premiered at the 2019 Venice Film Festival and won the IWC Award for Best Canadian Short Film at TIFF. She is currently working on the writing of her next feature film Les jours heureux (Item 7).

 

Born in Quebec, Chloé Robichaud lives and works in Montreal. Holder of a bachelor’s degree with honors from Concordia University in Montreal, she graduated in 2010 from the National Institute of Image and Sound (INIS).
