The festival's Team

Jérôme Pulis, President ~ Sandrine Brauer, Executive Director ~ Lili Hinstin, Programming Director
The Biarritz Nouvelles Vagues’ slate of films intend to break down dominant positions and pay attention to what drives the next generation. It welcomes established directors that have gone down in film history just as it bets on its future through the promotion of next gen talents.
Lili Hinstin, Programming Director
Shining a light on young people so that they enlighten us, too, is what Nouvelles Vagues is all about – a cheerful, fiery event for a unique cinematic experience.
Sandrine Brauer, Executive Director
My connection with creation goes hand in hand with my roots that go deep in my hometown, Biarritz, and the Basque Country. A genuine hub of artists, the city has a history of being cosmopolitan and open to the world.
Jérôme Pulis, President
