Born in Montreal on June 24, 1979, Mathieu Favreau had, from an early age, a passion for cinema. He directed his first short film at 21 years old and founded a motion design company at 24. Versatile, he perfected over the years his skills as editor, cinematographer, animator and director. His commercial projects help finance personal endeavors close to his heart. In 2011, a trip to Cambodia inspired him to make his first self-financed feature film: Rumdul Beat, currently in postproduction.
