-Who is Adèle Vincenti-Crasson?

I’m a young screenwriter and filmmaker graduated from La Fémis, a cinema school in Paris in 2021. I have also studied 2D animation and stop motion at Atelier de Sèvres, and computing and microelectronics at Mines de Saint- Etienne, a french engineering school. I have directed several short-films, the last one, King Max is about self-acceptance and Drag King community. 

Currently, I’m developing a documentary about a young person who’s looking for his indemnity and I’m writing King Max as a feature film.

-What inspired you to become a filmmaker?

I have always loved filming and telling stories. I discovered cinema by practicing. Since my childhood, I film or animate stories, often alone. Quickly, I brought my family and friends to take part in my short films. And when I understood that the cinema could help people and myself too, I decided to be a filmmaker. –

Do you think the cinema can bring a change in the society?

For me, the cinema is political and as a director you have a mission.

Indeed, you can change mentality of people by giving portrayal and visibility for discriminated and invisibility communities. And for concerned people, you can help them to feel not alone. And this is very necessary. Portrayal in movies can save lives. 

What would you change in the world?

I dream of a society where you can be who you want and who you are without discrimination, violence, judgment. Just a society where you can be yourself. 

Where do you see the film industry going in the next 100 years?

I don’t really know but I hope there will be more female directors or more queer directors. I hope the cinema will be more diversified. Diversified by the subjects it deals with but also by the people who create it. And I hope people will keep in mind that  cinema is essential and it could save people.
