Biography

Alexis Fortier-Gauthier studied at UQÀM and INIS. In 2004, he codirected Sur le quai de la gare, a documentary that won awards at the RVCQ. He then directed shorts, Après tout (Genie 2008 award), Dans la neige and Gaspé Copper (nominated for Best Short of Mid-Length Film at the 2014 Jutra Awards). In 2016, he codirected his first feature: D’encre et de sang. He has been combining his artistic practice with mentorship at Wapikoni Mobile for over 10 years. 

In 2017, his practice has expanded into new mediums. He experimented with 360° and dome filmmaking, while firmly remaining anchored in traditional cinema. In 2019, he directed Mélopée (written by Rémi Dufresne), a short-film foray into fantasy cinema. He enjoys leading several short and feature-length projects simultaneously.
