Hugues Sweeney

Executive producer of interactive production, National Film Board of Canada
Montreal, Canada

After spending several years playing with words as well as ideas while studying philosophy and literature, Hugues Sweeney became interested in stories as much as the opportunities that technology offers to tell them. He first worked in new media at Radio Canada, then was head of Bande à part before joining the National Film Board of Canada in 2009 as Executive Producer of interactive works. Experiments in the “grammar” of interactivity, sound design and generative art, NFB Digital Studio projects such as A Journal of Insomnia, BLA BLA and Do Not Track have received more than 80 awards and honours around the globe, including several Webbys and SXSW, Japan Media Arts and Gémeaux awards.
