Zoé Pelchat

Director | Screenwriter

Zoé Pelchat got her big break with DOMINOS ( season 1 and 2), crowned Best Digital Series at the first edition of the Canneseries in 2018. After a bachelor’s degree in communications at Concordia University, she studied filmmaking at INIS. Her fiction projects, which she writes and directs, all have a very personal touch; a mix of darkness and humour, an aesthetic of imperfection and a deep love for humanity. MOON (Lune) is her first short film.

She is currently working on her first feature film DOUCE PRIÈRE and two television series projects: GABY LES COLLINES and ATLANTIS, while continuing her advertising career within the prestigious Cinélande banner.
