Nicolas Krief - Realisateur - Film Director
DIRECTOR’S BIOGRAPHY

Born of a Tunisian Jewish father and a Saguenay mother, Nicolas Krief is the fruit of a surprising cultural and genetic mix. In 2014, he won the SARTEC prize for the workshop Cours écrire ton court. A passionate screenwriter film enthusiast, he collaborated on several projects released in 2020, including the short series Les fleuristes, broadcast on TV5 and Télé-Québec, as well as Jusqu’au déclin (The decline), Netflix’s first Quebec film. Themes of identity mixing, cultural heritage and filiation are dear to the author, who is currently working on various feature film projects.
