Julia Ducournau, jury member for MyFrenchFilmFestival!

The director of Raw, the horror film which instantly joined the ranks of cult movies, is a member of the Directors' Jury for the 8th edition of MyFrenchFilmFestival.

After gaining a double degree in modern literature and English at the Sorbonne, and a two-year preparatory course in modern literature at the Lycée Henri-IV, Julia Ducournau studied screenwriting at La Femis, graduating in 2008.

Influenced by the cinema of David Cronenberg, in 2011 she wrote and directed the short film Junior, a fantasy comedy about adolescence. The film was selected at a wide range of film festivals and won many awards. In 2012, she and Virgile Bramly wrote and directed Mange, a comedy.

She presented her first feature Raw at Critics' Week in 2016. The film, a mixture of teen and horror movie set against a background of cannibalism, caused a sensation in festivals across the globe and was a huge critical success.
