Jean-Claude Lord (born June 6, 1943, in Montreal, Quebec) is a Canadian film director and screenwriter. He was one of the most commercial of the Québécois directors in the 1970s and aimed his feature films at a mass audience and dealt with political themes in a mainstream, Hollywood style.
Jean-Claude Lord began his career as an apprentice to Pierre Patry at Coopératio, working as an assistant director on many films before directing his first feature, Délivrez-nous du mal, in 1965. His 1974 film Bingo exploits the post-October Crisis, post-Watergate paranoia prevalent in North America at the time with considerable panache. It was the subject of an intensive critical debate about its credentials as a left-wing film. He made his first English-language film in 1982, Visiting Hours, a low-budget horror film that still remains a cult favorite. In 1986 Lord worked for the first time in Television on the series Lance et Compte, a series in which he would revisit several times years later. Since then he has worked primarily in television on several other series and Made-for-TV movies.
