Marine G. Brun-Franzetti is an artist filmmaker and multimedia producer from the south of France, currently living in New York City. 

She has written, produced and directed several short films and documentaries, music videos and commercials for clients and artists worldwide. She works as a videographer and editor for companies like MSF/Doctors Without Borders USA, Nalanda Institute, Mixmag magazine, The Lee Strasberg Institute, Zeno Production, and ACRES. She recently completed her MFA in Integrated Media Arts from Hunter College / City University of New York and received a double BA in Art History and Art Management from Paris La Sorbonne between 2009-2013. 

​She recently co-founded the company "Collectif" with artist and costume maker Marion Moinet based in Paris. Collectif envisions making documentaries about the transcendent reality in which people are living in without paying attention to it. Their current project is "The Children of Izquierdo", a documentary about the legendary costume studio of New York. It is a cinema verité documentary inspired by French New Wave cinema, in which “living paintings” present the costumes of the studio and its community of people working there with originality and humor. 

Cinema is a way for Marine to express her fantasies under the prism of absurd humor and metaphor. Fascinated by negative spaces and unusual framing, she envisions creative visuals using Art Theory and History to transform Cinema into a specific playground with no limits. Frequently inspired by the future, the younger generation is her main topic. She is currently writing a script about climate change and how the Youth would find a way to protect their land. 

​In addition to filmmaking, she is also a visual artist and activist and uses video and photography to extend her artistic practice to promote awareness around themes of climate change and environmental concerns. She has curated several exhibitions with artists and filmmakers in New York City around these themes including “Before There Is No More” and “Designated”.
