Maxime Faure

Maxime Faure (30 ans) a grandi en Bretagne. Après une enfance rythmée par l’envie de reprendre la ferme du voisin et celle de faire des films, il part étudier le cinéma à Rennes, puis Montréal. C’est là, saisissant l’opportunité d’une grève étudiante, qu’il réalise son premier court-métrage en racontant le quotidien d’un collectif féministe. Tricot, rêve & révolte ! (2012) sera notamment sélectionné au Festival International du film d’ethnographie du Québec. En 2015, son documentaire Masquée est Coup de cœur du jury au Festival Cinéma sous les étoiles. L’année suivante, il part en Ukraine pour filmer Intranquille (2016), lauréat du Prix France Culture / Infracourts. En parallèle, Maxime collabore avec Radio France sur son premier documentaire sonore : À ne pas croire (2016) et réalise la série documentaire Unceded Voices (2017), Prix du public au Festival de films féministes de Montréal.
Ainsi soient-elles (2019), son premier long-métrage, co-produit par Les films du balibari et Metafilms, sortira prochainement dans les salles du Québec.
