Emmanuel Tardif approaches cinema as an abstract and revealing journey. Having extended his understanding of film production and direction at Concordia University, he pursued his work as a writer, director and editor on his first feature film, Speak Love, which took several years to write, prepare and finance. Since then, Emmanuel has co-founded the production company Les Rapailleurs, with which he wrote, directed and produced his second film, Heirdoms, distributed by Les Films du 3 Mars in 2021, and his third feature film, In Broad Daylight, which is currently being edited. Emmanuel also immersed himself in his passion for documentaries with The Walker, a portrait of an autistic man who writes his first short film and perform the main role.
