Marie-Hélène Turcotte


Born in 1971 in Joliette, Québec, Marie-Hélène Turcotte has lived and worked in Montréal since 1998. Trained in architecture, she splits her practice between drawing and animated filmmaking. She is noted for the fineness of her lines, favouring evocation over narration. Her first animated film, The Formation of Clouds, was produced by the NFB in 2010, to critical acclaim. It was screened at several national and international festivals, garnering three prizes and distinctions in 2011, of which the Golden Horseman Animated Film for best animated film, at the Dresden FILMFEST.
