His feature documentary, In Country, had its world premiere at the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival and international premiere at Hot Docs in Toronto. His award-winning short documentaries have shown at major film festivals. Prior to receiving an MFA from Stanford University’s Documentary Film program, he worked as an assistant editor for Academy Award-winning filmmakers Alan and Susan Raymond. He worked extensively as a producer and cinematographer for clients including Facebook, Pinterest, CNN, PopTech, and Seattle Children's Hospital. He is a 2014 Sundance Documentary Film Program Fellow and was named as one of The Independent's "10 Filmmakers to Watch in 2014". He is an assistant professor at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia and program director of the Film + Video department.
AUBE GIROUX is an award-winning documentary filmmaker, organic gardener, and food blogger who works on food, agriculture, and sustainability issues. She previously directed two documentaries for the National Film Board of Canada and several independent productions. Her work has been shown on CBC and at international film festivals. Giroux is the creator of Kitchen Vignettes, an acclaimed farm-to-table food blog and online cooking show on PBS. The show received the 2012 Saveur Magazine Best Food Blog Award and is a two-time James Beard Award nominee. In her feature-length documentary Modified, Giroux and her mother embark on a very personal and poignant investigative journey to find out why genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are not labeled on food products in the United States and Canada, despite being labeled in 64 countries around the world. An official selection at over 60 international film festivals (including Film Days in 2018), Modified is the winner of numerous awards, including the 2019 James Beard Foundation Broadcast Media award for best documentary. Giroux holds an MFA in Film Production from York University.
