Nicolas Vannier is a French cinema and television producer. Alain and Danielle Vannier have been directing the Orly Films company since 1962. A company dedicated to producing, distributing and internationally selling films directed by the best foreign and French screenwriters, from Claude Miller to François Truffaut, Claude Berri, Alain Corneau, Roman Polanski, Wong Kar Wai, Bertrand Blier, Claude Sautet... The eclectism of the catalogue is due to their curiosity and their appetite for encounters and friendship, which enabled Orly Films to be associated with films like “The little thief”, “Indochine” or “In the mood for love”... Lately, Nicolas Vannier has developed genre films such as “Le pharmacien de garde” by Jean Veber, or “Le ciel, les oiseaux et... ta mère !”, Djamel Bensalah’s first film starring Jamel Debbouze. These days he’s working on international television projects with “Ratcatcher” (USA) and “Crystal Clear Content” (UK).

How was the MAKE ME A MOVIE (FAIS-MOI DU CINÉMA) selection born?

It all started a few years ago in a movie theater where I was two seats away from a young man with Tourette's syndrome. It is an invisible disability characterized by vocal tics.

Ten minutes after the film began, two guards entered the room and forced the young man out with force. It upset me so much that I also left the room to go home.

And it is for this reason, and to change the way people look at each other, that I asked some film schools to make their student directors work on the theme of invisible disability.

This particular selection proposes to these future young directors to consider this theme as one that can be included in cinematographic productions. Let them defend the idea that disability can be treated in all its forms in the cinema, that artists or technicians with disabilities can work in this field, that films and cinemas must be accessible to them.

Each year, a film personality will watch all the films in this selection and will award the prize to the film he considers to be best directed, taking into account the theme and the way it has been treated and filmed.
