Julien Lilti completed his studies in sociology and rural development in 2002. After completing a master’s degree in documentary filmmaking in 2003, he worked as a reporter for Canal + for four years, while taking part in several films in front or behind the camera. In 2007, he left journalism to become a full-time screenwriter. Since then, he has both written for television (Pahé), for films and for documentaries (Gilles Caron, j’ai voulu voir). Hippocrates, a feature film he has co-written, was the closing film of the 53rd Semaine de la Critique. Adama, his feature-length animation film released in October 2015, has been selected in many festivals (Chicago, San Sebastian, Annecy…) and is amongst the three animated features nominated at the European Films Awards 2015. He’s currently writing two feature films and a TV show for Canal+.
