The 36th Tehran International short film festival Special Guests

Baptiste started his career at CELLULOID DREAMS in Paris as acquisition executive for MUBI, helping to establish one of the first VoD platforms for independent cinema. He then gained experience in the Argentinian film market consulting production companies on international distribution and coproduction. In 2014, he completed the Atelier Ludwigsburg-Paris at LA FEMIS and FILMAKADEMIE Baden Württemberg, a one-year training program for European producers and distributors during which he produced the short film PLATINIUM (Arte). From 2015 to 2017, Baptiste worked as Sales Executive for PICTURE TREE INTERNATIONAL representing a lineup of 12 films per year on the major markets and festivals. Since 2019, he is the Head of Acquisitions for the Berlin-based VoD platform FILMIN GERMANY. In parallel to those activities, Baptiste has founded in 2015 with his partner Thibaud Ader the production company LA ONDA PRODUCTIONS with the desire to work with young auteurs and directors through an innovative and creative approach to production. Together they have produced the digital series LOULOU (Arte) and the documentary JUST KIDS (Canal +) among others.

In TISFF, Baptiste is looking for interesting new projects for international co-productions as well as to acquire Iranian films for VoD distribution.
