    Charles Grenier

    Charles Grenier*( born in 1987) produced and directed his first shorts in his hometown of Sherbrooke, Quebec. After a college degree in Communication, he moved to Montreal to complete a major in Film Production and a minor in Philosophy at Concordia University. Thriving to tell stories in the most honest way, he is primarily concerned with human contradictions and anxieties of social, professional and personal performance. Professional editor, he directed in 2013 his first independent short film, Waterproof, and gets the same year a grant from the Arts Council of Quebec
    for the movie Chelem.
