Producer at Avenue B

Avenue B has 18 years of existence to its credit, fifteen feature films, a few short films and several documentaries in various formats. They now produce two to three feature films a year. Their editorial line covers a fairly wide spectrum ranging from cutting-edge auteur films (Le Cours Étrange des Choses, by Raphael Nadjari, or Marche ou Crève by Margaux Bonhomme) to auteur projects with broader commercial potential (La Ritournelle by Marc Fitoussi, Irréprochable by Sébastien Marnier or Énorme by Sophie Letourneur). They always try to find consistency between the budget and the distribution potential of their films.
