Robin Aubert

A well-known film and television actor, founding member of the comedy troupe Chick’n’Swell, screenwriter and director, Robin Aubert amazes by the sheer eclecticism of his work. A maverick who defies categorization, he easily switches back and forth between short and features films and between independent films and higher-budgeted auteur films, always with a unique outlook. Marked by his appearance on television’s Course Destination-Monde, Robin Aubert shot over 15 documentary films around the world between 1997 and 1998 for the show aimed at young filmmakers. After its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2005, his first feature film, Saints-Martyrs-des-Damnés (Saint Martyrs of the Damned), earned him the best director prize at Fantasporto 2006, the Portuguese fantasy and sci-fi film festival, won the Audience Choice at the CinEnygma film festival in Luxembourg and was distributed in many countries. In 2009, he directed À quelle heure le train pour nulle part (Train to Nowhere), an independent experimental film shot without a script and with only a production manager, a sound engineer and actor Luis Bertrand. Robin Aubert presented in 2010 his latest feature film project, produced by Max Films, À l’origine d’un cri (Crying Out).
