About David Findlay

David Findlay

David Findlay was born in Quebec City in 1991 to a Francophone mother and an Anglophone father.

During high school, he was introduced to the craft of filmmaking by making skiing and snowboarding films with his friends. Through the years, these films gained popularity and were produced with the help of sponsors, mostly skiing equipment companies, to be sold in ski shops all over Quebec and premiered at Quebec City’s Université Laval each September for three years to audiences of over 400 people. In grades 11 and 12 David studied in a boarding school in Switzerland where he continued making films, this time on and off the slopes.

Once he got to the University of British Columbia in Vancouver to study arts, David got more involved in narrative filmmaking and made his first short film, Face It. The five-minute experimental narrative presented a week in the life of a young woman studying in university.

The film was a success as it granted David a spot in UBC’s film production program, premiered at the Cannes Film Festival’s 2012 Short Film Corner, presented at the Festival International du Cinéma en Abitibie-Témiscamingue 2012 and was part of Québec’s SODEC selection of 10 short films to be shown at the Clermont Ferrand International Short Film Festival in 2013 and recently played at the Seoul Short Film Festival.
