François Jaros started directing commercials at a very young age, since directing more than a hundred and fifty of them. He has also directed music videos and two television series. In 2012, he wrote, directed, shot and edited Daytona, a fiction short film centered around the Spring Break, bending the limits between fiction and documentary. The following year, his short Life’s a Bitch (Toutes des connes), a fast-paced comedy, went on to be featured in more than sixty festivals, including Sundance and Telluride. It won several awards, including the Jutra (Quebec’s Academy Awards). In 2015, in another change of registry, he released Maurice, a short film that deals with the issue of death with dignity.
