Before focusing on documentary, Marie-Claude Fournier worked for over ten years in the television world, invested herself in photography and traveled for over a year from Europe to Asia. Following her passage in a documentary filmmaking program at the INIS in 2010, several of her short documentaries are selected by international festivals. Recipient of the TV5 Fund in 2012, she produced and co-directed the web documentary My Northern States, a co-production between TV5 Québec and Pied-de-biche productions. The work won the Gémeau Award for best interactive documentary produced for the web in 2013. In 2014, with her collaborator Anne Laguë, she received a scholarship from the CALQ for the development of the short documentary Femme Centaure, presented on the La Fabrique culturelle website. Marie-Claude Fournier also devotes part of her time to cultural mediation by working with the Wapikoni mobile, the RIDM and Projet Harmonie. It was during a collaboration with this last organization that she directed the movie Le Hold up de ma liberté. In the fall of 2014, Marie-Claude left Quebec to work with the Ciné Institute in Jacmel, Haiti, where she mentored the production of corporate projects. Always one foot between here and elsewhere, she pursues the creation of a documentary about the journey of a young athlete from Montreal.
