  • Marie Valade

    Marie Valade is a Quebec animation filmmaker and co-director of the Stop Motion Montreal Festival. In 2010 she completed a Bachelor's degree in Animation at Concordia University and participated in the NFB's Hothouse creation program. Since then, she has collaborated on short and feature films and cultural mediation projects. Fascinated by traditional frame-by-frame animation techniques including pixilation, object and puppet animation, and 2D animation, she enjoys playing with the boundaries between the world of narrative and that of experimental creation. Lolos (2021) is her most recent project. Made in rotoscopy on paper, this short film explores the iconography of breasts.
