Born 1972 - France
Marie Losier is a filmmaker and curator. She has shown her films and videos at museums, galleries, biennials and festivals. She studied literature at the University of Nanterre (France) and Fine Art in New York City. She has made a number of film portraits on avant-garde directors, musicians and composers such as Mike and George Kuchar, Guy Maddin, Richard Foreman, Tony Conrad and Genesis P-Orridge. Whimsical, poetic, dreamlike and unconventional, her films explore the life and work of these artists.
Her films are regularly shown at prestigious art and film festivals and museums, such as the Tate Modern, the Whitney Biennnial, PS1, MoMA, the Berlin Film Festival, the International Film Festival Rotterdam, Tribeca Film Festival, the Cinematheque Francaise, and the Centre George Pompidou in Paris.

She lives and works in New York City, where she has been film curator at the Alliance Francaise since 2000, and presents a weekly film series.
