Works by Antoine Janot

Antoine Janot graduated from an audiovisual technician's diploma and continued his studies at the Sorbonne's master's degree in cinema. After co-directing a feature-length self-produced documentary (Le sommeil de la foule, 2013) and some editing experiments, he directed several experimental short films, including

Les Êtres du brouillard (2016), selected in various festivals around the world and awarded Best Experimental Film at the Bucharest Short Film Festival, as well as Berceuse pour 17 gratte-ciels, 192 immeubles et 13 851 habitants (2016), broadcast on France 3.

Multidisciplinary and curious about everything, he also expresses himself through painting, photography and writing, publishing an essay entitled Le cinéma est-il devenu muet? (ed. l'Harmattan, 2014), novels (Le Goûteur, ed. Abatos, 2016 and Le croque-neige, ed. l'Harmattan, 2017) as well as collections of poetry (Poésie de rue & d'intérieur, ed. Maïa, 2020 and Histoires courtes, ed. Les impliqués, 2017). He is also co-founder of two associations: Les Hôtels Solidaires, which redistributes food to the most destitute, and which won an award in 2020 at the trophies of the Social and Solidarity Economy; as well as the association NOW, whose goal is to support oppressed minorities around the world.

Painting since childhood, working mainly with watercolor and pure pigment, Antoine Janot has participated in several group exhibitions, including Points of Departure at La Reine Blanche gallery (Paris) in 2019, What's What and La pensée qui crie at La passerelle gallery (Paris) in 2018.
