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 and poetry.
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,
Pauline Vaillancourt and Wayne Horvitz.
The works he has directed, co-directed or
co-created were rewarded by the attribution
of fifteen awards, in addition to earning
over ninety nominations; they were screened
in Canada, the United States, Peru, Spain,
Portugal, Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Russia,
Belarus, India and Australia.
