About Sasha Alcoloumbre
After completing his undergraduate studies in literature, philosophy and art history at Concordia University in Montreal, Sasha spent some time living in Paris, France, where he worked in two notable contemporary art institutions: the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain and the Palais de Tokyo. A cinephile and art lover from as early as his teenage years, Sasha’s hunger for the arts grew tenfold while living in France.
Over time, it became clear to him that he had to act on his desire for filmmaking; this realization galvanized him to write a first version of Three Months. In the spring of 2018, a few months after returning to Montreal, and with no prior experience in the industry, he directed and produced this film. He is currently in development on multiple projets, including a series and a second short film.
