Calyx Passailaigue


In his films, Calyx Passailaigue has created a world of pseudo-intellectuals and
sociopaths, of foster home orphans and art house film directors. With his company
PassAJoke Productions he writes, directs, produces and occasionally acts in his own
short films. Calyx is interested in narratives that seek to challenge social norms and
commentary on the art of filmmaking itself.

Currently in his fourth year of the Image Arts Film Studies program at Ryerson
University, he has experience working in fiction, documentary, music videos, corporate/
promotional films and experimental shorts. His work has been shown at the Beijing
International Film Festival, the Newark International Film Festival, the Richmond Youth
Media Fest, the Global Campus Network Film Festival, the Velcom Smartfilm Mobile
Film Festival and the Ekurhuleni International Film Festival. He is also the director and
producer of the official music videos for Morpheus Richards. He was the recipient of the Jeff Young Award from the Arts Unionville Drama program as well as the Jack Kuper Film Award and the Universal
Studios Canada Scholarship in Filmmaking from Ryerson University.
