Interview with Guillaume BIOLLAY

After a career as a communicator between Paris, Lyon and Montreal, Guillaume Biollay took his first steps in the audiovisual world in 2014, where he held the positions of product manager and then editor in a content creation agency. Between commercials and corporate films, Guillaume writes, produces and co-produces “very” inspiring short travel films (Guatemala, Ivory Coast, Norway, …). These clips and poetic montages have earned him 2 awards: Winner of the “Made in Corporate” Festival in Deauville (2016) and the “Empreintes Prize”, awarded by the Association of Communication Consulting Agencies (2020). Guillaume Biollay is for the first year a juror of the “Pour Faire Court” festival.

Guillaume, why did you accept to be a member of the jury of the Pour Faire Court festival?

First of all to satisfy my curiosity for new experiences and because I am very honoured by this invitation.

What is your relationship with cinema?

To say that I am a constant film buff or, conversely, that I am indifferent to cinema would be lying to you. I simply love cinema without worshipping it.

An example of an outstanding experience?

An unusual film shoot in Viking territory (see article in Ours magazine in the appendix)

What do you think of the festival’s theme for this 4th edition?

Escape or what else? With almost a year of worldwide immobility and deprivation of great journeys, this theme is essential. A warming choice.

What are your passions in life?

Literature, especially French, philosophy, walking and the art of eloquence.

What can we wish you for 2021?

Simply to continue on my little path, which is enough for me to be happy. However, you can say “fuck it” for the “Com-Ent 2021” prize, where we are entering a film shot in Norway.
