Maryse Latendresse

Writer | Scriptwriter

Maryse Latendresse has more than one string to her bow. Holder of a diploma in feature film writing (L’inis), a master’s degree in literature (UQÀM – prize for the best thesis in creation) and a bachelor’s degree in psychology (UdeM), she has published four novels and co-directed two collectives of renowned authors.

She has written several short films, including LE TRUCK, which has been seen at around twenty festivals (Ce l’ho Corto Audience Award, Bologna; Prix Tourner à tout prix, Regard). She is currently developing various projects, including four feature films, a short film and a webserie. In 2018, she also produced a video-poetry which received special mention from the jury at the Montreal Poetry Festival. She wrote a play (Nomination Meilleur texte francophone-Fringe) and several short stories.

She was one of six emerging creators duos for the first edition of La Forge Québec cinema. One thing’s for sure: she hasn’t said her last word.
