Francis Leclerc (born 1971 in Quebec City) is a Canadian film and television director, screenwriter and film editor. He is the son of Félix Leclerc. Since 1995 he has worked in the Quebec film industry, directing music videos for many well-known Quebec artists. He has directed more than 20 short and medium-length films, including a television adaptation of Robert Lepage’s Les Sept branches de la rivière Ota. He directed and co-wrote his critically acclaimed debut feature, Une Jeune fille à la fenêtre, in 2001. His second feature, Looking for Alexander, a nuanced and mature work about lost memory and childhood tragedy, secured him Genie Awards for best director and screenplay as well as the Prix Jutra for direction.

His most recent film, Barefoot at Dawn (Pieds nus dans l'aube), was released in 2017.[1] The film was an adaptation of his father's semi-autobiographical novel of the same name.
