Michael Dowse is pictured above during the making of the Alliance Films release, Fubar II. Dowse grew up in Calgary and played offensive tackle for the Dinos football team while getting a communications degree at the University of Calgary. Eventually he started making films while doing odd jobs at local TV networks like Shaw Cable and A-Channel. He began his career as a director with music videos for such bands as The New Pornographers and Chixdiggit. His first feature, Fubar, premiered at the 2002 Sundance Film Festival and quickly became an underground hit. A writer and editor, he was nominated for a Genie Award for his editing work on Fubar. It’s All Gone Pete Tong, his second feature, won the City Award for Best Canadian Feature at the 2004 Toronto Film Festival. We list his credits as a Director first.
