After more than 40 years of filmmaking, Jean-Pierre Lefebvre is widely admired as "the godfather of independent Canadian cinema," particularly among young, independent filmmakers. He studied literature at the Université de Montréal and worked as a teacher and film critic before embarking on his film career in 1964. He formed his own production company, Cinak, in 1969, and headed the National Film Board’s French-language fiction studio in 1969–70. In addition to a stellar career, including winning the Critics' Prize at Cannes for his film "Les fleurs sauvage," he has also devoted time to teaching screenwriting and directing. A recipient of the Govenor General's Performing Arts Award, Lefebvre's other awards and honours include Officer of the Order of Canada (1991); Wendy Michener Prize (Canadian Film Awards, 1971); Ontario Film Institute Award of Excellence (1983); Independent Film Alliance Award (1985); fellowship from Ryerson Polytechnical Institute (1987); Albert Tessier Award (1995); and the Prix Lumières (Association des réalisateurs et réalisatrices du Québec, 1997).
