Eric K. Boulianne

Screenwriter | Author

Proud native of the Charlevoix, Eric K. Boulianne left the countryside in 2002 to study cinema. Following his bachelor’s degree in film at UQAM, he wrote, among others, the short films Marshmallow and Little Brother (selected at the 53rd Semaine de la critique in Cannes and screened in more than 60 international festivals). In addition to his work for TV (Les Pêcheurs, SNL Qc, Web Therapy, Heavy, Gala Québec Cinéma 2017), Éric co-wrote the popular success Père En Flic 2, and PRANK the “Cinderella” film of 2016 (selected at the 31st  Venice Film Festival and winner of the Gilles Carle Prize of the RVCQ 2017). In 2019, three feature-films written by Eric K. Boulianne took place: Before We Explode (nominated Best Screenplay at the Quebec Cinema 2019 Gala), Liar (Menteur, 6 M box-office) co-written with Émile Gaudreault and Sébastien Ravary, as well as The Barbarians of La Malbaie, co-written with Marc-Antoine Rioux and Alexandre Auger. He is currently developing several other feature films, including the adaptation of the successful novel Le Plongeur (Stéphane Larue) with director Francis Leclerc.
