Geoffroy Grison



Geoffroy Grison is a French-born international film producer and screenwriter. After a Masters degree in classical Greek poetry, and an early experience as a stage actor, Geoffroy Grison started working for the television channel Arte TV with Pierre Chevalier. He remained his script adviser for several years. Grison went on to begin his career as a producer with Raphael Nadjari, with whom he produced five films: The Shade (1999), I Am Josh Polonski's Brother (2001) and Apartment #5C (2002), all shot in the United States, then Avanim (2004) and Tehilim (2007) in Israel. After being selected three times at the Cannes Film Festival, twice at the Berlinale, and acclaimed by the critics, these films confirmed the unique voice of this humanist filmmaker. Grison went on to discover emerging auteurs from France and abroad, producing the directorial debuts of filmmakers such as Laurent de Bartillat (The Vanishing Point, Rome Film Festival 2007), Rodolphe Tissot (The Killer Queen – Grand Prize Luchon Film Festival 2009), or Bulgarian contemporary artist Konstantin Bojanov (Avé – Cannes Film Festival – Semaine de la critique 2011). In 2013, he wrote his first script with Raphael Nadjari, A Strange Course of Events, which was selected for the 2013 Directors' Fortnight in Cannes. Geoffroy Grison has participated in several funding commissions for the French National Film Center (CNC). He currently serves as commission member of the Strasbourg City Film Fund (France), and SSA/Suissimage Creative Development Fund in Lausanne (Switzerland). He has been appointed as a jury member for several film festivals, including Arras Film Festival (competition) and Karlovy Vary FF (Pitch and Feedback).
