Biography

Champlain-born artist Simon Laganière mainly made a name for himself through his short film work. Several of his films made the festival circuits. His most recent, Follow the Fox (2014), was nominated for Best Live Action Short Drama at both the Canadian Screen Awards and the Gala Québec Cinéma. Yet Simon Laganière’s impetus to tell stories does not end with cinema. While his film projects proliferate, his band Les Frères Goyette releases four albums. For him, music is just another way to create images and depict a story.
