Biography
Born in 1974 in Dakar, Marie Paccou was 15 when she discovered animation in a small festival near Montpellier. As student in ENSAD (Paris), she directed her first short film, “Un Jour”, which won many awrds around the world, including the European Academy Award for Short Film in 1998.

She graduated from the RCA in London in 2000, where she directed “When you’re asleep” and “Me, the other”. Since, she’s established in Auvergne, close to Clermont-Ferrand, where she directed two short films (“Le jardin” and “Hubert, l’homme aux bonbons”), worked on the opening of an animation school in Cournon and started a small film festival in her village through la Maison aux Mille Images. After writing a short with Hélène Marchal, unfortunately abandoned due to the bankrupt of Les Trois Ours, she turned to shorter and experimental projects.
