Director. Franco-Manitoban Rémy Huberdeau started working with video at an early age and directed his first experimental documentary Loveletter to St-Boniface at 21. Obtaining a degree in Native Studies from the University of Manitoba, he moved to Montreal to pursue his craft in documentary filmmaking where he graduated from the Institut National de l’Image et du Son (INIS) in 2009. Pursuing his experimentation with documentary, Huberdeau's films often deal with trans issues. Home of the Buffalo, which is constructed from archival footage from the 1920 and 1930 explores the relationship between a father and a child whose gender is never identified. Transforming Family, 2012, depicts the struggles of transsexual, transgender and gender-fluid parents and parents to-be. Socially and politically engaged, Huberdeau spends his time between Ontario, Québec and Manitoba. His short films have screened in most major queer film festivals around the world. In 2013, Huberdeau finished shooting the material for his first feature-length documentary about transgender families.
