Simon-Olivier Fecteau is a writer, director, producer,
comedian, and actor from Victoriaville, QC.
Simon was part of the comic trio The Chick'n Swell during the three years that their weekly program was broadcast on television from Radio-Canada, between 2001 and 2003.
In 2006, he made a difficult decision to leave the group to pursue his passion for film. Simon's first short The Remaining Days is about a very old widower, while cleaning out his closet, finds a list of things he wanted to do in his life and decides to carry them out.
Simon's 1st feature film, Bluff, is a black comedy about a building inspector that finds a shocking discovery in the basement to a building that is about to be destroyed. He contacts the landlord and, as the pair wait for the police to show up, the story of this discovery comes uncovered.
Both films have played the festival circuit and they each have been nominated for a Genie in Canada.
