Marco Joubert | Filmmaker + cinegrapher




Marco Joubert is a self-taught Canadian filmmaker and video artist,

with a background in architecture and visual arts. His audiovisual

practice, characterized by its formal rigor, tends toward the development

of a personal language, situated at the crossroads of cinema, video art,

poetry and philosophy.


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.


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. He has had the privilege to

collaborate with Marie Tifo, Pierre Curzi, Jean Marchand, Pauline Vaillancourt,

Wayne Horvitz and the National Film Board of Canada.


His works were rewarded by the attribution of 31 awards, in addition to

earning over 150 nominations; they were screened in the following countries:

Australia, Belarus, Bulgaria, Canada, Colombia, Czech Republic, France,

Greece, Guatemala, Hungary, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Kosovo, Mexico,

Peru, Portugal, Russia, Serbia, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom and USA.
