Biography

Julien Becker was born in Luxembourg in 1979. He studied photography and co-founded the production company Skill Lab with Gwenaël François in 2010. After directing several commercials, he wrote and directed his first short 22:22 in 2013. Besides many festival selections, 22:22 won the Best Luxembourgish Short Prize in 2014. This prize gave Julien the opportunity to be part of the Nuits en Or 2015 tour organised by the Académie des César. His second short, Article 19-42 (2019), was also screened at the Luxembourg City Film Festival. He is currently developing his first feature.
