Alain Guiraudie


Alain Guiraudie was born in 1964 into a farming family, in a small city in France. He is an actor, director and writer. In 1990, he directed his first short film, Heroes Never Die. Guiraudie first garnered recognition with two medium-length works in 2001: Sunshine for the Poor (International Competition at Entrevues in 2000) and That Old Dream that Moves (Directors’ Fortnight 2001, Jean Vigo Award and Gérard Frot-Coutaz Award in Belfort). With his 4th feature film, Stranger by the Lake, Alain Guiraudie hit a homerun at the 66th Cannes Film Festival, earning the praise of many critics and winning the Best Director Award in the Certain Regard section. His last film, Staying Vertical, was presented in Competition at Cannes in 2016.

    Despite the cancellation of its 35th edition and thanks to the commitment of its partners, Entrevues has decided to carry on with its post production support to help as much as possible the filmmakers during this period so uncertain for the whole sector.
