(Audience Award at the MyFrenchFilmFestival in 2015, and also earning Benoît Poelvoorde the Magritte Award for Best Actor in 2014), Fabienne Godet has been secretly shooting her fourth feature film, Our Wonderful Lives . Described as "very unusual" by her faithful producer, Bertrand Faivre (of Le Bureau Films), this ensemble film, which cannot boast any big names among its cast and was born of a creative process worthy of a Mike Leigh movie, is currently at the editing stage and will be ready in the second half of 2017.

Meanwhile, next October, Godet will kick off the shoot for her next film, Si demain… (lit. “If Tomorrow…”), which will star Italian actress Jasmine Trinca (nominated for the David di Donatello Award for Best Actress in 2013 for There Will Come a Day [+see also:

). Written by the director together with Claire Mercier and Franck Vassal, the story revolves around a woman who has come to an utter standstill in her life. One day, without knowing why, she receives a manuscript that takes the form of a private diary. The things she reads in it echo her own experiences, and she resolves to find the author in order to find out how the story ends, and what happens after the diary stops. Her enquiries will allow her to come back to life. Si demain… is also being produced by Bertrand Faivre for Le Bureau Films, and it has already been pre-purchased by OCS for the second distribution window, in addition to receiving backing from the Occitanie and Pays de la Loire regions. The French distribution will be handled by ARP Sélection

Both films, Our Wonderful Lives and Si demain..., will be sold overseas by The Bureau Sales

We should also point out that Le Bureau will be releasing Life Beyond Me [+see also:
