Clotilde Vatrinet (F3M)
In 2008, Clotilde Vatrinet obtained her Diploma d’Études Supérieures Spécialisées (DESS) in Cinema and she left her beautiful region of Lorraine (France) to work on film shoots as a script. Very quickly, her great aspirations took her to Montreal where she settled in 2009. She then joined the KINO movement and became a volunteer while continuing to work as a script and serve coffees. In 2010, she discovered distribution by joining the Films du 3 Mars team, an organization that works to defend Quebec/Canadian auteur cinema. In 2014, she joined the Board of Directors of Ciné Tapis Rouge, an NPO specialized in cinematic exchanges between Quebec and abroad. When she’s not working, she enjoys swing dancing, reading graphic novels and raising awareness for the animal cause.

Sylvain Lavigne (F3M)
The world premiere of his first short film, Maudit, took place at the Oslo International Film Festival. What followed was festivals, awards, champagne and showbiz! After graduating from Ryerson University in Toronto, he founded the production company Provocateur Films, produced music videos and worked as a director/coordinator on VOLT. Loads of nominations and awards later, Sylvain the filmmaker feeds himself by creating 14 short films while Sylvain the director earns his living on TV.
