Screenwriter and director Florence Lafond won a bursary for best short film after wrapping up her studies at UQAM with her first project, Fumigènes. She has since directed several other short films and is co-screenwriter on Je voudrais qu'on m'efface, a series honoured at Canneséries. Florence is passionate about social cinema with a touch of magical realism.
