2020 Jury Member Announcement & PRINDIE Curated Collection: Léopold Legrand

Updated: Jul 23


Every week leading up to the official selection announcement and virtual festival presentation, we will be introducing 2020 jury members and films to be viewed for FREE by the artists we love and support in our new PRINDIE Curated Collection!


Without further ado, PRINDIE would like to announce the 2020 jury member participation of director Léopold Legrand! In 2019 Léopold submitted Mort Aux Codes (To Hell With Codes) and impressed the jury so much he earned Grand Director of the festival, alongside his colleagues taking home Best Editing (Agathe Zimmer) and Best Performance in a Leading Role (Olivier Rabourdin) for their great work.


Léopold is a 27-year-old French director. After completing his high school diploma in social sciences, he studied literature and humanities in the intensive two-year classes prépa program in Paris. Subsequently, he attended Tisch School of the Arts at New York University for one year, studying editing, writing, and directing. In the fall of 2013, he moved to Brussels, Belgium to attend INSAS where he completed his masters in film production. In 2016 he directed Angelika, a documentary that has been selected for numerous festivals and won various awards. In 2018, he directed To Hell With Codes, his first professional short film.


The PRINDIE Curated Collection is honored to present Léopold's highly-acclaimed 2016 short documentary, Angelika.

ANGELIKA

dir. Léopold Legrand

2016 / Documentary / 14'10


Production Giulia Desidera (INSAS)

Angelika has probably seen too much for a 7-year-old. However, she never complains and carries on with determination. Between the home where she now lives and the dog shelter where she visits her dog, she keeps walking, head high, with a heavy heart.
