François Bovy is a film director. He shares a homebase between Switzerland and Colombia; in Colombia, he is currently working on an upcoming film entitled OÙ SONT PASSÉS MES 56 ENFANTS? [Where did my 56 Children go?].

In 2005, he did his first feature-length documentary, MELODIAS , in Medellin. That film won the European Film Academy nomination for the Arte Prize (European Film Award for Best Documentary); it went on to be selected for numerous festivals and to garner a number of prizes (a.o. Visions du Réel, Pampelona, Milan).

François Bovy had previously directed BEL CANTO, a short film that attracted a great deal of attention on the festival circuit (a.o. Prix Canal + in Clermont-Ferrand, Jury Prize in Poitiers).

Besides his work as a film director, François serves as both head cameraman and scriptwriter.

He is currently preparing a feature fiction film, SOIF [Thirst], for which he received a grant from the Société Suisse des Auteurs (the SSA – Swiss Authors Society) in 2006. This project, initially developed by Les Films de la dernière heure, is currently in pre-production with Hugo Film in Zurich.
