Florence Pelletier studied film production at Concordia University in Montreal. In 2012, her first short film Sonya gave her the opportunity to direct actors Sébastien Huberdeau, Gilles Renaud and Noémie Godin-Vigneault. The film screened in several festivals, including Fantasia and the World Film Festival in Montreal and the Regard sur le court-métrage in Saguenay. In 2012, she co-directed Mes anges à tête noire, which won the award for best film by a woman director in the Festival du film étudiant de Québec and placed third in the contest filmpossible.
