KEYNOTE: Celine Tricart

Mar 14, 2022

1:00pm – 2:00pm CT

Celine Tricart is an acclaimed storyteller who has developed a unique style involving highly emotional stories and strong visual artistry. Her work has been showcased at numerous top-tier festivals including Sundance, Venice, Tribeca, SXSW, and HotDocs. She has received the Lion for Best Immersive Work at the Venice Film Festival (2019), the Storyscapes Award at Tribeca (2019), two Lumiere Awards from the Advanced Imaging Society, two Telly Awards, an Auggie, and a Platinum Aurora Award, amongst many other accolades. Celine served as the president of the International Jury of the Venice Virtual Reality section at the Biennale Cinema 2020.

Celine co-directed and produced Maria Bello’s “Sun Ladies” VR experience about the women Yazidi fighting ISIS in Iraq which was selected in over 70 international festivals. For this, she had to travel through ISIS-held territory to meet the women soldiers at the border between Iraq and Syria and record their stories. In 2019, Celine released “The Key”, an interactive experience that garnered critical acclaim.

Celine’s company, Lucid Dreams Productions, specializes in utilizing new technologies to further bold, unapologetic storytelling, and in empowering female voices in the filmmaking process. She is now working on an ambitious transmedia project about women’s self-defense called FIGHT BACK, as well as her first video game for PC and consoles.

In 2021 Celine was awarded France’s prestigious insignia of Chevalier De l’Ordre Des Arts et Des Lettres (Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters) by the Ministry of Culture of France.
