Program

Lukas Dhont


Lukas Dhont was born in Ghent, Belgium where he earned a degree in Audio-Visual Arts from the KASK Conservatorium. His short films Corps Perdu and L’Infini received numerous prizes. Throughout his studies, he focused on fiction but also explored the possibilities of documentary. In 2016 Lukas Dhont participated in the Cannes Cinéfondation Residence with the script of his first feature film Girl. The film combined themes the filmmaker had already examined, including dance, transformation and identity. Girl was awarded the Caméra d’or for best first feature at Cannes on its 2018 premiere in Un Certain Regard. His latest movie Close only strengthens his reputation.
