About us

Eddy Cinema was launched in 2021 by Nicolas de Rosanbo, Jean-François Bourrel, Céline Vanlint and Maxime Baillet to develop shorts and feature films. 
Our aim is to help auteur filmmakers share their unique and personal vision of the world we live in. Given today's visual content overload, we feel authenticity and honesty are the markers of meaningful filmmaking.

We are particularly interested in films about human behaviour, which scrutinise and meticulously recreate our past or present societies.
We strive to achieve high level cinematography tailor made to the subject matter. Ultimately, we hope to share our pursuit of truth and individuality with as wide an audience as possible.

Initially our development slate grew out of the collaboration between our directors and Eddy Animation or Eddy Film. Both companies foster young talent, many of whom are embarking on their first short film.
Eddy Cinema is now looking to meet and work with experienced auteur filmmakers who share our values and ambition.

Synopsis

Paul and his big sister Céline squabble all the time. Just the normal life of a happy family, with its occasional upsets.
Suddenly, a momentary loss of control, a sharp smack, and everything becomes tense and dramatic. The daily harmony is muted leaving only heavy silence.

The 24 Hours of Le Mans, 1955. 300,000 spectators are watching from the sidelines. It is 6:00 PM when Pierre Levegh’s car ploughs into the spectator stands, scattering the crowd with his car engine’s hot debris. It is a tragedy that will cost more than 80 lives.

A joyful tribute to painters and an homage to Jackson Pollok, « Dripped » imagines the nature of the artistic muse in a completely new and unusual way.
