Jean-Marie Buchet lives and works in Brussels, where he studied at La Cambre. He wrote and produced his first film in 1961 and built out an extensive body of work, consisting mainly of fiction films with a slight fantastic and surreal side. At the same time he works with other filmmakers, such as Boris Lehman, Roland Lethem and Patrick Van Antwerpen. From 1988 he runs a workshop in screen play writing at L’ELICIT (ULB). His recent work has been shown, among others, at the Festival International du Film de Valenciennes, the International Film Festival for Fantastic Film in Brussels and the Festival du Court Métrage de Clermont-Ferrand.
