Lucile Hadžihalilović
The Adrienne Fancey Best Film Award - Evolution
  
Lucile Hadžihalilović
Writer - Director
 
Lucile Hadžihalilović is the recipient of TheWIFTS 2015 Adrienne Fancey Best Film Award for Evolution, an eerie and ominous piece of science fiction. In a most painterly visual fashion, Ms. Hadzihalilovic directs and masterfully defines a darkly organic and daunting coastal colony inhabited by a coven of peculiar and pious women who administer boiled and brewed elixirs created from the fruits of the sea to a group of innocent boys trapped in a slow pulsing amorphic otherworld of veiled rituals and quiet intrigue.

Lucile Hadžihalilović is among a group of young filmmakers around the globe, making films tackling subjects that reflect society unrestricted within the traditional scope and confines either of subject matter or the methodology of film.

Lucile Hadžihalilović spent her childhood and adolescence in Morocco, before moving to Paris where she studied first art history, then film at the Institut des Hautes Etudes Cinématographiques (now la Fémis). Her graduation film was La Première Mort De Nono. In the early 1990s she founded the production company Les Cinemas De La Zone with Gaspar Noé, with whom she worked on Carne and Seul contre tous (I Stand Alone). Their collaboration continued with her contribution to the screenplay of Noé's Enter the Void.

In 1996, Hadžihalilović produced, wrote, edited and directed La Bouche De Jean-Pierre (Mimi), a 52-minute film that screened in Un Certain Regard, at Cannes, and won the Prix SACD at Avignon Film Festival, the Best Screenplay Award at Angers European First Film Festival, the Special Jury Prize at Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival and the OCIC Award (Honorable Mention) at Amiens International Film Festival.

In 2004, she directed the feature film Innocence, produced by Agat Films. The film won the Best New Director Prize at San Sebastian International Film Festival, the Bronze Horse for Best Film and the Best Cinematography Prize (for Benoit Debie) at the Stockholm Film Festival, the FIPRESCI Prize and People's Choice Award at Istanbul International Film Festival, the Best Film Award at Neuchâtel International Fantasy Film Festival, and the Special Jury Prize at the Yubari Festival, Japan. She has also directed two short films Good Boys Use Condoms (1998) and Nectar (2014) selected to be showcased in numerous festivals. In 2015, she directed Evolution, co-written with Alanté Kavaïté and in collaboration Geoff Cox, and produced by Les films du Worso, Noodles Production, Volcano Films, Scope Pictures and Left Field Ventures. The screenplay was awarded the NHK / Sundance Prize in 2009.

Filmography: Evolution (2015); Nectar (Short) (2014); Innocence (2004) (Best New Director Award – San Sebastian Film Festival; Bronze Horse – Stockholm Film Festival); Good Boys Use Condoms (Short) (1998); Mimi (1996) (Un Certain Regard – Cannes Film Festival).
