In a career spanning over 25 years, working in both French and English, Francine Pelletier has emerged as one of the most respected figures in Canadian journalism. She brings this wealth of experience to her work in documentary production.
She was the co-founder and editor of the influential feminist magazine La Vie en rose, and contributed a weekly column to La Presse, Montreal’s largest French-language daily. Her written work has also appeared in the influential Montreal daily Le Devoir and The Gazette.
Her film credits include Fred Rose: Un Canadien errant, a documentary produced by Great North Productions about the only communist ever to be elected to the Canadian parliament; Public Enemy Number 1, a profile of former Quebec premier Jacques Parizeau, produced by Macumba International; and Sex, Truth & Videotape, a six-part documentary series on women’s sexuality around the world, produced by Virage Productions.
Her most recent director credit is for Cure For Love, written and co-directed by Christina Willings, and produced by Earth to Sky Pictures in co-production with the National Film Board of Canada.
