Marc-Antoine Rioux

Writer

Marc-Antoine Rioux began his scriptwriting career in 2009 after studying arts and humanities, communication and screenwriting. Mauvaise, his first short film, was screened as part of the Fantasia film festival. He then devoted himself to writing feature films and co-wrote PRANK, a cheeky teen comedy selected by the 2016 Venice Critics’ Week and winner of the Gilles-Carle Prize at Rendez-vous Québec Cinéma in 2017. He will soon tackle new projects, whether a comedy (Monsieur Thibault), a horror film (La Guérite) or an action movie (Operation Sandbox), his focus remains solely on delivering fresh and entertaining stories. Marc-Antoine’s most recent collaboration, the short film Heart bomb (Une bombe au Coeur), was screened at the opening of the 2019 Fantasia film festival, and his second feature film, Les Barbares de la Malbaie, will be playing in Quebec theaters in November 2019. If Marc-Antoine devotes himself to these projects with a devouring passion, it is of course nothing compared to the obsession he has always had for the Montreal Canadiens, or the work of David Mamet.
