🎬 Nicolas Leborgne has been a documentary and fiction film director for more than ten years. According to him, both practices are complementary as reality must enter fiction to make it alive and credible and vice versa. In 2002, he directed his first short film called Douche froide. Sortir (2011), Canada (2014) and Gravité (2015) were then released. In 2017, he directed the series Fin ar bed which was nominated at the Luchon festival of TV creations (Festival des créations télévisuelles).
