Pierre Patry (2 November 1933 – 7 June 2014) was a Canadian film director and screenwriter.[1]

Biography[edit]

Born in Hull, Quebec, Patry began his career in the theatre as an actor and a playwright. He was a founding member of the Canadian Association of Amateur Theatre. He joined the NFB in 1957 as a writer on the Panoramique series. Patry was a major force in the beginning of the Quebec feature-film industry in the sixties. He directed three features, most notably Trouble fête (1964). He left the NFB in 1963 to co-found the film cooperative Coopératio. Unfortunately, the company shut down after five years because of systemic problems in the financing and distribution of feature films. Despite only working for a decade in the film industry he has left behind an outstanding body of work.

In 1981 he was a major player in the development of the French language educational television station Canal Savoir.

Patri died on 7 June 2014.[2]
