Françoise Doherty is a Canadian filmmaker, songwriter and media artist. Noted for being a trailblazer in queer activism with a stop-motion animated series for children.[1] She garnered Audience Choice Awards at Cineffable in Paris France[2] and Festival Image + Nation in Montreal.[3] To date The Girl Bunnies series has screened in 21 countries.[4]

The fourth musical short in The Girl Bunnies installments (The Girl Bunnies. ROCKETSHIP.) was premiered on June 25, 2015 at Frameline, The San Francisco International LGBT Film Festival.[5] The third musical short in the Girl Bunnies series (The Girl Bunnies. BIG TREE.) was released June 23, 2011, the second short in the series (The Girl Bunnies. Hockey.) was released October 25, 2009 and Les Lapines (The Girl Bunnies) was released in 2008. Musically, she composes, plays multiple instruments and sings. As a filmmaker she composes the music first and then, creates the animated story and develops the characters.[4]

As media artist and filmmaker, Doherty’s international portfolio spans live-action filmmaking, 2D animation, stop-motion animation, photography, media installation and performance. With the exception of her photographic exhibitions, she composes/produces the soundscapes and songs for her work. She has exhibited widely within Canada, The United States, Europe and Asia.[1][6] She works in a genre she coined “Critical Fiction’.
