BIO/FILMOGRAPHY

Jacques Molitor was born in Luxembourg on February 15th, 1980. After two years of medical studies, he enrolled at film school IAD (Belgium), where he obtained a degree with honors.

In 2003, Jacques took a trip to California for the summer production workshop « directing intensive » at prestigious University of Southern California USC. Lecturers: William H. Macy, Jerome Gary among others.

Jacques’s IAD thesis project GEMINI is a bold mixture of traditional film and animation techniques and was screened at Korea’s SICAF and Munich Student Film Festival.

In 2008, Jacques co-wrote and directed the ambitious short WITH THE DUST. This story of a failed gay romance, exploring the intersection of love and death, was screened in the official short competition at Locarno, as well as in numerous international festivals: Les Films du Monde in Montréal, Ghent, Dresden Filmfest, Torino LGBT, etc.
"With the Dust" has also been screened on the TV channel ARTE.

His third short film BONOBO (2009), a portrait of a man's self-destruction, shot on 35mm, was broadcast on channel France 2. Jacques has also conceptualized and shot the first commercial for AIDS prevention organisation "Paticka" and directed two episodes of the RTL sitcom COMEBACK, as well as several music videos.

In his quest for perfection, Jacques has attended workshops by Peter Webber ("Hannibal Rising") and script doctor legend John Truby.
In 2015, Jacques released his first fiction feature MAMMEJONG, a coming-of-age story about a man-child who tries to sever the unhealthy ties that bind him to his mother to win the heart of a young, equally troubled girl. The project is supported by Luxembourg Film Fund and produced by Lucil Films (Lux) / Wrong Men North (Be).

He is currently working on the television documentary series "routwäissgro", which he co-created. His interest in non-traditional documentary filmmaking was already evident with 2013's SWEETHEART COME (produced by Red Lion), tackling unconventional sexuality and relationships in Luxembourg.
