PATRON OF LA FABRIQUE CINÉMA 2019
Mira Nair will be the patron of the 2019 edition of La Fabrique Cinéma de l'Institut français!
Mira Nair, director and producer, works on both documentaries and fiction, and feels just as at home in independant cinema as she does in the enigmatic world of Hollywood. In 1988, she became the first Indian filmmaker to take home a Camera d’Or. She also directed the first Disney film shot entirely on the African continent. Since 2004, through the Maisha Film Lab, she has been using her experience to help emerging filmmakers from around the world. For all of these reasons, the Fabrique Cinéma by the Institut français is pleased to welcome Mira Nair, a prolific and socially conscious filmmaker, as the 2019 patron.
