Moira Chappedelaine Vautier: Biography

After a brief spell in television (Canal+ and France 3) at the start of her career, Moira Chappedelaine-Vautier returned to producing documentary films as an independent. Between 2000 and 2015, in the role of executive producer with a number of independent production companies, she was involved with many film projects, mainly documentaries, but also short films and feature films, as well as web documentaries.

Moira is also a documentary director. Her first film “Bogotrax, Red Sonante” was shot in Colombia in 2006. The second, almost ten years later, co-directed with her father René Vautier, was “Histoires d’Images,Images d’Histoire”, which explored the problems most close to her, the conservation and use of archives in the writing of history.

In parallel with these activities, Moira has undertaken the restoration of the films shot by her father since 1950.

In 2011, she joined the Ciaofilm team with a clear ambition: to create a strong company for the production of ambitious films. With this energy, Ciaofilm produced the film “Zona Franca” by Georgi Lazarevski, released in 2016, winner of the Prix La Croix for Best Documentary of the Year, and “Coby” by Christian Sonderegger, released in the spring of 2018.
