Biography

At the age of ten, Stefan Thibeau was already making his first films with his classmates. His early desire to compete against Hollywood’s greatest productions quickly took a turn when he discovered those great filmmaking figures: Jan Bucquoy, John Cassavetes, Jean-Pierre Mocky and Jean-Luc Godard. In 2008, he realised his first feature film “Un homme qui te ressembe”, and in 2010, “Simples Images”, his second one, after which he turned to documentaries. That’s when he started working with Jean-Claude Derudder, with whom he made five films. In 2011, meeting with André Debaar gave him the idea of making a biopic on this great actor, and in 2018, he dedicates another to the writer Marcel Moreau entitled “Marcel Moreau: se dépasser pour s’atteindre”. Being drawn as much to cinema as to the theatre, he also directed a stage show around Moreau’s work, called “Buvonzuncoup”. As well as being a director, Stefan Thibeau is an actor and a stage director for the non-profit organisation La Roulotte Théâtrale, which he co-directs. He wrote spectacles such as “La sonate de Vinteuil”, a musical about Marcel Proust’s lifework, and ”Si nos rêves étaient filmés”, a theatrical performance about the surrealist artist Achille Chavée.
