Marco Joubert is a Canadian filmmaker born in Montreal. Primarily a director, cinematographer, screenwriter and editor, he is also an actor, producer and musician.
Professional experiences, film shoots, workshops, residencies or invitations to festivals have brought him to Nebraska, Chicago, Prague, London, Ottawa, Brussels, Spain, Los Angeles and Minsk.
Six of the short films he has directed, co-directed, co-created or photographed were rewarded by the attribution of eight awards, in addition to earning some twenty nominations.
His films were screened in Canada, the United States, Peru, Spain, Czech Republic, Russia, Belarus, India and Australia.
Thematically, his work revolves around the specificity of the human condition: the implications of our capacity to think and reason; the gap between material comfort and our basic needs; the difficulty of communicating with others; and the ever-looming presence of our mortality. It is about the creation of otherworldly realities that still have the power to resonate with our common experiences as human beings.
His practice in photography, architecture, drawing, graphic novels, and even music, somehow all contribute to his understanding of space, light, shapes and time, and certainly help develop the sensibilities he can bring to the art and craft of telling stories with moving images.
