Frederic Mitterrand

Man of letters, cinema, radio & television

President of the jury of the 42nd American Film Festival

Alternately a teacher, operator of Olympic cinemas, host and television producer, columnist and writer, he directed numerous documentaries and feature films, including Lettres d'amour en Somalie (1981) et Madame Butterfly (1995). Appointed director of the Académie de France in Rome (Villa Médicis) in 2008, he left his post in June 2009 to accept that of Minister of Culture and Communication, which he held until May 2012. After The Bad Life (2005, Le Vaudeville Prize) and Cannes festival (2007), he published, in November 2013 at the same Editions Robert Laffont, Break, a diary of his years spent on rue de Valois and a behind-the-scenes chronicle of power, which met with immediate success and won him the Prix du Livre politique 2014. With Adolescence, chronicle of childhood in the 1960s published in March 2015, Frédéric Mitterrand succeeds in combining two literary veins that are dear to him: that of the intimate author as well as that of the memorialist.
