Hippolyte Leibovici is a Franco-Belgian film director. His relationship with cinema began at the age of thirteen when he would often hand out coffee on film sets in Paris. Gradually abandoning his schooling, his experiments with his camera would become the roots of his approach to filmmaking. He started making short films with minimal budgets, exploring both his technical skills and his desire to direct. At the age of eighteen, he began studying film directing at Belgian film school INSAS, where he met the team with whom he now works. He had his first success with the documentary MOTHER’S, which won close to forty festival awards and the very first Magritte for best short documentary. In 2023, he directed Beyond the Sea, a musical comedy that joins the arena of his previous film: the backstage of a cabaret. He is currently developing his first feature film.
