Sébastien Girard

Writer | Screenwriter

Born in Montreal, Sebastien arrived in Paris in 2000 where he landed a recurring role in a French TV series on the France 2 channel. He then took on roles in advertising campaigns that allowed him to travel the world and sharpen his artistic sense with talented directors. From 2007 to 2008, he lived in Los Angeles to learn more about the American film industry. Upon his return to Montreal, his work caught the attention of TF1 International, which offered him the opportunity to adapt Vincent Crouzet’s novel “Le Seigneur d’Anvers” followed by the adaptation of the international bestseller “The Ice Princess” by Camilla Läckberg for the UGC group—his first two professional writing contracts.

Since then, Sébastien has been continuously working on screenplay projects in both French and English. His adaptation of Marie-Renée Lavoie’s novel, “La Petite et le Vieux”—directed by Patrice Sauvé, produced by Parallaxes, and starring Gildor Roy, Vincent-Guillaume Otis, Marilyn Castonguay, and Juliette Bharucha—will have its world premiere at the 77th Locarno Film Festival and will be released in theaters across Quebec in the fall of 2024.
