Marcia Romano

Director and script consultant

Marcia Romano was born in Buenos Aires in 1971. In 1979, she left Argentina as the dictatorship and Travolta craze were in full swing. She moved to Paris, and later to Marseille. After studying screenwriting intermittently, five unforgettable years at the ticket booth of the Cinéma Mac-Mahon, messy on-set experiences, and a glorious half decade working as a development manager in a production company, she co-wrote her first script in 1997: Les Vacances, directed by Emmanuelle Bercot, with whom she would work again later on. This short film, which won the Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, was the first of a long list of collaborations as a screenwriter: François Ozon, Emmanuel Bourdieu, Éric Rochant, Xavier Giannoli, Audrey Estrougo, Audrey Diwan, Albert Dupontel, Édouard Baer, Alice Winocour, and many more… She has also been working on her own projects, and going to the cinema every day.
