Instructor: Antoine Bourges

 Antoine is a Toronto-based filmmaker originating from Paris, France. His shorts "Woman Waiting" (2010) and "William in White Shirt" (2015), along with his medium-length film "East Hastings Pharmacy" (2012), have screened at festivals across North America and Europe, including the Berlinale, SXSW, the Viennale and TIFF. He has recently completed his first feature "Fail to Appear", which premiered at VIFF in 2017.

Antoine's films are informed by an interest in the relationship between individuals and systems such as healthcare, social, or legal institutions. His films have led him to direct actors of varying levels of experience – from professionals to non-actors – and to continually adapt his approaches to create authentic performances.
