      After film studies at Université de Montréal, Guy Édoin directed "Le pont" in 2004 (TIFF, Vancouver, Namur, Dresden, RVQC, Regard), the first in a trilogy of shorts entitled "Le pont", produced by Metafilms. "Le pont" was shortlisted for the 2005 Jutra for best direction. In 2011, Édoin's first feature, "Wetlands" ("Marécages"), had its world premiere at Venice International Film Critics' Week, where it received a standing ovation. That same year, it opened the TIFF's Canada First! section and received an honourable mention at the Vancouver International Film Festival, in addition to screening on the national and international festival circuits (Pusan, Namur, Tofino, Seattle, Tronheim, Sao Paolo). In 2013, his documentary "Corno" on painter Joanne Corneau won the people's choice award at the Montreal International Festival of Films on Art (FIFA). "Borders" ("Frontières") is his fourth feature.
