Marco Joubert is a self-taught Canadian filmmaker and video artist, with a background in architecture and visual arts. His audiovisual practice, characterized by its formal rigor, tends toward the development of a personal language, situated at the crossroads of cinema, video art, poetry and philosophy.
Thematically, his work revolves around the specificity of the human condition: the implications of our capacity to think and reason; the gap between material comfort and our basic needs; the difficulty of communicating with others; and the ever-looming presence of our mortality. It is about the creation of otherworldly realities that still have the power to resonate with our common experiences as human beings.
Professional experiences, film shoots, workshops, residencies or invitations to festivals have brought him to Nebraska, Chicago, Prague, London, Ottawa, Brussels, Spain, Los Angeles and Minsk. He has had the privilege to collaborate with Marie Tifo, Pierre Curzi, Jean Marchand, Pauline Vaillancourt, Wayne Horvitz and the National Film Board of Canada.
His works were rewarded by the attribution of 38 awards, in addition to earning over 230 nominations; they were screened in the following countries: Australia, Belarus, Bulgaria, Canada, Colombia, Czech Republic, Ecuador, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Guatemala, Hungary, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Kosovo, Mexico, Peru, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Serbia, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom, USA and Vietnam.
