Hugh Durnford-Dionne is currently studying Intermedia (an interdisciplinary electronic, video and performance art BFA program) at Concordia University.

Hugh has been involved in video production for more than six years. He began by directing music videos for local musicians. Now, he is expanding his focus to include documentary and animation techniques. In 2023, Hugh filmed and edited “Last Respects”, which won the Betty Youson Award for Best Canadian Short Documentary at Hot Docs. In 2019, he wrote and directed Charlotte’s Illustrated World--a short documentary about an adventurous Toronto illustrator--for CBC Arts.

In addition to his personal film projects, Hugh has worked as a video producer for NBS (a non-profit Montreal recording studio) for the last five years.
