Simon Rouby is a filmmaker and visual artist based out of Paris, France. His films have been presented by many international festivals including Cannes, Clermont, San Diego, Bucarest, Ottawa, and Taiwan. Born in 1980 in Lyon, he took his first artistic steps as a graffiti artist and then accessed other mediums such as painting and sculpture. From this background he studied film directing, first at Gobelins, Paris, and then at CalArts, Los Angeles. Without geographical boundaries, Rouby develops a research in moving images and their narrative potential, considering the cinematographic traditional projection as a specific case of installation art. His last short film, La Marche, was produced by Naïa Productions in 2010, with whom he is currently directing an animated feature film.
