Director Biography - Adrien Caulier

Adrien Caulier is a French director, screenwriter, editor, cinematographer and actor, born September 16, 2002 in Istres. At the age of 16, begins to make short films, which he broadcasts on YouTube. In high school, he was lucky enough to join a cinema section, which allowed him to deepen certain basics. In 2021, he entered the audiovisual school A.I.S. in Marseille. The same year, he directed his first medium-length film "Hide and seek". The following year he shot his first feature film "Le nom de la lune" but due to a production that was still too minor and the absence of broadcasters, he decided to release it also for free in its entirety on YouTube and Vimeo. The following year, he embarked on a new project, the duration of which was shorter, which made him develop his relationship with horror: a diptych on the pressure of the urban environment, particularly experienced from the female point of view, composed of the documentary Sleeping city (a prologue for Noctambule) then of the fiction Noctambule. At the start of 2024, he returned to the documentary side with “My dad never told me I love you”.
