Montrealer Jean-Marc Vallée began to make a name for himself in the mid-80s with music videos. During the following decade, he made several short films, some of which won awards, including Les mots magiques. His first feature film, Liste Noire, was the great commercial success of 1995 and marked the beginning of a long romance with the public. After a first set of projects in the United States, Vallée returned to Quebec to shoot C.R.A.Z.Y., an acclaimed work that revealed the talent of this young music-loving director internationally. His career takes a new turn: he signs the international co-productions The Young Victoria and Café de Flore. In the 2010s, he finds a place of choice in Hollywood, shooting some of the biggest stars of the moment. Dallas Buyers Club (2013) made him Quebec’s first director nominated for the Best Picture at the Oscars. Finally, he successfully tried his hand at series by acting as director and producer on Big Little Lies and Sharp Objects.
