Marcia Romano



“When you write a script, you have to work a long time to find the film before you dive into reality”

Born in Buenos Aires, Mar­cia Romano left Argenti­na with her fam­i­ly for France in the late 1970s. After study­ing film (Paris 8, la Fémis) and work­ing on film shoots (Yolande Zauber­man, Noémie Lvovsky) and in devel­op­ment for var­i­ous pro­duc­tion com­pa­nies (Ima Films, Fidél­ité), she co-wrote her first screen­play in 1997 for the short film Les Vacances, direct­ed by Emmanuelle Bercot. She went on to col­lab­o­rate on devel­op­ing screen­plays for var­i­ous film­mak­ers includ­ing François Ozon, Emmanuel Bour­dieu, Éric Rochant, Xavier Gian­no­li, Emmanuelle Bercot (with whom she reunit­ed for Stand­ing Tall), Radu Mihaileanu, Alice Winocour, Audrey Estrou­go, Audrey Diwan and Édouard Baer. Audrey Estrougo’s Suprêmes and Emmanuelle Bercot’s Peace­ful, two fea­tures she co-wrote, were pre­sent­ed at this year’s Cannes Film Fes­ti­val. Audrey Diwan’s Hap­pen­ing, anoth­er co-writ­ing cred­it, has been select­ed to play in com­pe­ti­tion at the upcom­ing Venice Film Festival.
