Director bio

Farid Bentoumi was born in France in 1976. After an MBA in Arts and Media, he travelled the world and came back with a strong urge to become an actor. He learned the classics in Paris and improvisation in Toronto. He then performed on stage (Brecht, Beckett, Molière, Visniec…), in several short movies, and played main characters in french TV serials. He co-writed and directed his third play in 2005, a creation about today’s Russia. He has won the grand-Prize at the 2005 French Scripwriter Festival. Last year, he shot a documentary about his half-french half-algerian family. Another night on earth is his first short movie.
