Charles-Olivier Michaud


Charles-Olivier Michaud grew up in Quebec City and first worked in the field of international business in Asia and United States. But he dreamt, thought about and began working toward a lifelong desire. He attended the Los Angeles Film School from 2006 to 2008 and received honourable mention for his work as a director and screenwriter. His first film, Snow & Ashes, in which he was writer, director and producer, was released in 2011. Selected by film festivals around the world, it won prestigious prizes and honours almost everywhere it screened. His first TV series, Boomerang (2014-2019) became a comedy hit, winning three Gemini awards for the lead actors, and collecting more than ten nominations in the major categories for its first season only. Michaud continued as director on the series for the following seasons. His 2023 feature RU, was selected to have its World Premiere at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.
