Lucile Hadzihalilovic

The director, screenwriter and producer Lucile Hadzihalilovic won the New Directors Award at San Sebastian Festival in 2004 for her film Innocence –also a participant in the Festival’s Backwash: the Cutting Edge of French Cinema retrospective this year. Hadzihalilovic studied Art History followed by Film at the IDHEC in Paris.

She wrote, directed and produced the short film La première mort de Nono (1987) and the medium-length La bouche de Jean-Pierre (1996), with the latter of the two winning several awards at the Avignon, Angers and Amiens festivals. In 1998, she wrote and directed the short film Good Boys Use Condoms and, in 2004, made the jump to feature films with Innocence, which she similarly wrote and directed. In addition to the above-mentioned award received in San Sebastian, Innocence won, among others, the Best Film and Best Photography Awards at Stockholm Festival in 2004, the International Critics’ Award and the Audience Award at Istanbul Festival in 2005, Best Film Award at the Neuchâtel International Fantastic Film Festival in 2005 and the Special Jury Prize at Yubari Festival in Japan (2005).

She is currently working on preparations for her next movie, Evolution, co-written with Alanté Kavaïté, a French-Spanish co-production on which filming is expected to start early next year.

In 1990, Lucile Hadzihalilovic founded the Les Cinémas de la Zone production company with Gaspar Noé, producing and editing the medium-length film Carne (1991) and the feature film Seul contre tous (1998), both directed by Gaspar Noé.
