Cjay Boisclair

Cjay Boisclair is a writer, director and producer from Kamloops BC. As part of a very small film community she branches out into many areas of filmmaking. Cjay started as an actor and quickly progressed to writing her first short script, The Bench, which has won numerous awards and nominations at international film festivals. Her second script, Stood Up, won her a seat in the Women in the Director’s Chair – Short Works Program, where it was chosen for a grant for funding. The resulting dialogue-free short film is currently enjoying a robust film festival run. Currently, Stood Up, has 27 awards or nominations and has been selected for 51 film festivals nationally (and it has yet to hear back from a third of its submissions!). Now in pre-production for her first feature film, a lengthened version of her award-winning short script, The Bench, Cjay divides her time between being a mom and helping to run Askem Talent in her hometown with her husband, Duane Boisclair.
