Jean-Claude Lamy, graduate in Political Sciences in 1961, started his career as a journalist with the Réalités, Jeune Afrique and Geo magazines. He went on to become editorial director at several publishing houses, including Hachette, Larousse and Nathan.

In 1994, he became cultural adviser to the Presidency of France Télévision. Three years later, in 1997, he was appointed head of France 3 Cinéma, dedicated to the coproduction of French and European films. In this function, he coproduced a number of international hits such as Amélie and Dancer in the Dark, also devoting his attention to detecting new talents like Erik Zonca (La vie rêvée des anges), Zabou Breitman (Se souvenir des belles choses), Michel Ocelot (Kirikou) and Marjane Satrapi (Persepolis).

Lamy made a biopic on Maurice Barrès for French television and has published several books: Dictionnaire mondial des films (Larousse, first published in 1988, revised 12 times), Lars von Trier, le provocateur (Grasset, 2005) and Larousse du cinéma (Larousse, 2006).
