1 May 2018 Jean-Marc Vallée, Compagnon des arts et des lettres du Québec
Filmmaker, screenwriter, editor and producer, Jean-Marc Vallée has carved out a place for himself in Québec and Hollywood thanks to a series of personal films marked by great emotional intensity and featuring wounded or marginal characters attempting to rebuild their lives.

He directed C.R.A.Z.Y., regarded as one of the best Canadian films of all time, along with Dallas Buyers Club, Wild and the TV series Big Little Lies. Appreciated for his work with actors while garnering critical and commercial success, he has won numerous Genie, Iris and Emmy awards, in addition to a Governor General’s Award for performing arts.

Jean-Marc Vallée was appointed to the Ordre des arts et des lettres du Québec at a special awards ceremony held on May 28, 2018.

The Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec would like to thank the Caisse de la Culture and Le Devoir, which partnered for the award of this honour.
