Olivier Coussemacq

After 12 years as assistant director, both for TV and the big screen, Coussemacq’s debut as movie director was Paroles en libertés surveillées, a one-hour documentary, which was selected for the Festival Cinema du Reel at the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris. Three short-feature films followed in succession. He then wrote the thriller Traquée directed by Steve Suissa, which prompted him to devote himself more fully to script writing. His script for Le désert de la mémoire received a special mention from the Scriptwriting Awards Jury. He was selected by Emergence, the International Summer University of Cinema, for his script Corps Etrangers. In 2009, he completed work on Sweet Evil, his first feature film. He is currently working on his second feature film, Nomads.
