    Mathilde Parquet

    France

    Born in 1990, Mathilde Parquet studied art at l’Atelier de Sèvres, then animation at EMCA school and La Poudrière, where she directed LOUIS (2013) and LITTLE MAN (2015) both selected at the Annecy Festival. She then started working as an animator and storyboarder on several projects. In 2020, she finalizes her first professional short film, TRONA PINNACLES (2021) wherein she explores once again the strange, or even the fantastic, to express the interiority of her characters.
