Festival international du
court métrage au saguenay


December 24, 1983, 10:50 p.m.; Julie and her cousins had too much sugar, Santa Claus is late and Denis, alone in his car, is anxious to set foot in his ex-in-law's house to pick his children up. Like the ones I used to know is an early coming-of-age film that is as grating as it is poetic.

  • Annie St-Pierre

    Annie St-Pierre was born in St-Pascal-de-Kamouraska and studied film at the Université du Québec à Montréal. A documentary filmmaker fascinated by parallel worlds that populate ordinary life, she has directed Migration amoureuse, a co-production with France and Belgium, which won the Pierre Perrault Best Documentary Hope Award, and Fermières, a feature film presented at the closing of the RIDM and widely distributed in Quebec theatres. Jean-Marc Vallée, her first fiction short film, won the Best French-language Screenplay Award at the REGARD Festival. Two of her projects are in production. Le plein potentiel is an observational documentary on life coaches, and Les grandes claques is a new fiction short film. An apostle of independent cinema, she also collaborates as a script advisor, casting director, actress, or producer with directors who inspire her, including Matthew Rankin, Denis Côté, and Monia Chokri.
