MICHAEL DOWSE (Director and Writer) was born in 1973 in London, Ontario, Canada. He began his award-winning film career in Canada by directing and editing local commercials, short films and music videos for such bands as The New Pornographers.

The innovative young director from north of the border gained critical acclaim in 2002 with his groundbreaking feature film debut Fubar, which Dowse wrote, directed, edited, shot and produced. A documentary-style comedy, Fubar made its debut at the Sundance Film Festival in the prestigious midnight section. The sequel is forthcoming.

Dowse followed this success with 2004's award-winning feature It's All Gone Pete Tong. Set against the opulent background of the Ibiza dance scene, the film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and showcased Dowse's talents as both a writer and director. Its accolades included The City Award at Toronto, Best Feature and The Audience Award at the 2004 GenArt Film Festival and the 2005 Jury Award for Best Feature at HBO's U.S. Comedy Arts Festival.

When he is not in production, Dowse lives in Montreal with his family.
