After training at the Conservatoire National d’Art Dramatique in Paris, Sandrine Kiberlain burst on to the scene in 1994 with Éric Rochant’s "The Patriots", for which she earned the Romy-Schneider Prize and a nomination for the Most Promising Actress César. She finally received that César in 1996 for Laetitia Masson’s "En avoir ou pas". She also earned a Theatre Revelation Molière in 1997 for "Le Roman de Lulu". In forty-or-so films she has revealed a range of talents in dramatic and comic registers, earning her several acting prizes in France and abroad. Sandrine Kiberlain has worked with Jacques Audiard, Benoit Jacquot, Claude Miller, Nicole Garcia, Philippe Le Guay, Alain Resnais, Stéphane Brizé, André Téchiné, Maïwenn, who’s "Polisse" won the Jury Prize at the Festival de Cannes in 2011, and Bruno Podalydès. After several nominations for the Best Actress César, she won the award in 2014 for "9 Month Stretch" by Albert Dupontel and was nominated again in 2015 for Jeanne Henry’s "Elle l’adore". She then rejoined André Téchiné for "Being 17" and accompanied him to Berlin, where the film was selected for the Official Competition. She also directed her first short film, "Bonne Figure", which she presented at Cannes in the Official Selection of the Semaine de la Critique in 2016. She has just finished shooting "La Belle et la Belle" by Sophie Fillières.
