Philippe Lefebvre
Born in Montreal, Philippe Lefebvre studied scriptwriting, creative writing and film production at UQAM. Editor since he graduated from university in 2015, he has worked on more than 20 fiction and documentary projects, all selected and awarded at a variety of festivals. It was at the NFB of Canada that he edited his first feature-length documentary Where the Lands Ends(Loïc Darses) presented as the closing film at the Rendez-Vous Québec Cinéma in 2019, and the series Gatherings (Moïse Marcoux-Chabot), nominated at the 35th Gémeaux Awards. In 2020, he was selected, alongside 11 other creators, to be part of the first edition of La Forge Québec Cinéma, a writing residency where he rediscovered his passion for scriptwriting. He is now editing several films, in addition to developing his own projects as screenwriter and director.
