Jean-Marc Vallée
b. 1963 in Montréal, Québec

<Jean-Marc Vallée>

Jean-Marc Vallée on the set of the Alliance Fiilms 2009 release, Young Victoria. Vallée made his ground-breaking feature debut with Liste Noire (Black List), in 1995. The strikingly stylish erotic thriller was a first for its genre in Québec cinema, and was honored with nine Genie Award nominations. Ten years later, he returned to French-language features with the internationally acclaimed hit, C.R.A.Z.Y. Blending a beguiling coming-of-age tale with a magical ode to outsiders of all ages, the powerful yet poignant film's intensely personal story embraced universal themes and went on to become a phenomenon. It was distributed in over fifty countries and won some twenty international festival awards, 11 Genie Awards, 15 Jutra Awards, and the Golden Reel Award as Canada’s top-performer at the domestic box office. Vallée flirted with Hollywood when he made Strangers in 1996, and Los Locos in 1997, as well as completing the first two installments of his short film trilogy devoted to father-son ’s heart. Les Fleurs magiques (1995) and Les Mots magiques (1998). Both shorts were awarded numerous festival prizes at home, and abroad. His 2013 film, Dallas Buyers Club had its World Premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. Dallas Buyers Clubt received 6 Academy Award nominations including Best Picture, but Vallée was overlooked for a Best Director award. It went on to win Oscars® for Best Actor (Matthew McConaughey) and Best Supporting Actor (Jared Leto) and Best Makeup. His 2015 film, Demolition, which began production in New York in September of 2014, was selected to be the opening Gala film at the 40th Toronto International Film Festival.
