Eric K. Boulianne

Screenwriter | Author

A proud native of the Charlevoix region, Eric K. Boulianne left the countryside in 2002 to pursue film studies. After receiving his B.A. in Film Studies from UQAM, he wrote, among other things, the short films Marshmallow and Petit Frère (selected at the Cannes 53rd Critic’s Week and screened at more than 60 international festivals).

Along with his work as a TV writer (Les Pêcheurs, SNL Qc, Web Thérapie, Lourd, 2017 Québec Film Gala), he co-wrote the sequel to the popular success De Père en Flic, as well as the 2016 “Cinderella” movie, PRANK (selected at the 31st Venice International Film Critics’ Week). In 2019, three feature films written by Eric K. Boulianne were released: Avant qu’on explose (nominated in the best screenplay category at the 2019 Quebec Film Gala), Menteur (top Canadian box-office grossing movie of 2019), co-written with Émile Gaudreault and Sébastien Ravary, and Les Barbares de La Malbaie, co-written with Marc-Antoine Rioux and Alexandre Auger.

In months to come, three other feature films he co-wrote will be released: Farador (in which he also has the lead role), Viking and the adaptation of the best-selling novel Le Plongeur.
