Alexandre Larose (Canada) is a French-Canadian filmmaker born in Montréal, Québec. He received his BEng Mechanical Engineering from the University of Sherbrooke (2001); a BFA from Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema (2006); and an MFA in Studio Arts, Film Production from Concordia University (2013).

His approach relies on a methodical stripping out of layers embedded in both the live subjects and the technique that translates them into visual artifacts. Larose’s films have garnered numerous awards, including the Grand Prix and Critics’ Award from 25FPS Festival (Zagreb), Fuji Award from EX-IS Festival (Seoul), Grand Prix from Festival du Nouveau Cinéma (Montreal), and the International Jury Award for Best Film, Hamburg International Short Film Festival.
