Robin Aubert, a director, screenwriter and actor, played many roles on both television and film. In film, most notably, Aubert was nominated for a Lead Actor award for his work on Andre Forcier's "La Comtesse de Baton Rouge" (1998). In television his role of Leo on the sitcom Radio Enfer (Canal Famille 1995-2001) led to him winning the Gemeaux award for best actor in the category of dramatic youth series in 1996.
Although Robin Aubert's debut feature didn't happen until 2005, his career as a director began much earlier. Perhaps the most beneficial time of his life was participating in the 1997-98 Course Destination-Monde (Radio Canada), which was a television series for young filmmakers. He shot more then 15 documentaries during this time which led to him winning the Public's Choice Award, the Silver Camera Award, and the SODEC award. Because of this he received a grant of $50,000 towards the production of another of his short films.
Aubert's debut feature was "Saint Martyrs of the Damned (2005). His film played at the 2005 Toronto International Film Festival where he eventually won a Best Director award from the 2006 Fantasporto Film Festival in Portugal. The actor turned writer turned director continued working steadily in both fields, directing "La Mort de John Kordic" in 2012 and playing a recurring role in the Canadian television crime drama "Le Gentleman" (Radio Canada 2009- ).
