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 38 awards, in addition to earning over

230 nominations; they were screened in

the following countries: Australia, Belarus, Bulgaria, Canada, Colombia, Czech Republic,

Ecuador, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Guatemala, Hungary, India, Ireland, Italy,

Japan, Kosovo, Mexico, Peru, Poland,

Portugal, Russia, Serbia, Spain, Sweden,

United Kingdom, USA and Vietnam.
