Artistic Director Tribeca FF and Les Arcs FF (France)
Frédéric Boyer is the new Artistic Director of the Tribeca Film Festival since 2012 and of the Les Arcs European Film Festival since 2009. Prior to that he was the Artistic Director for two years and Head of Programming for the Directors’ Fortnight in Cannes for six years. Boyer’s infatuation with cinema began when he frequented the Cinematheque Française in his youth. He attended the master classes of critics
of French New Wave cinema at the Universities of La sorbonne and Censier. In order to experience the different aspects of film shooting he assisted in diverse and small jobs on sets. He started to work at Videosphere in 1994, for more than 10 years, a video library of some 80,000 titles including a wide range of arthouse films, in Paris.
