Déborah Benattar left France at the age of 20 for Kiev in Ukraine where she promoted the French film and television industry on the behalf of the French Embassy for 4 years.
While she feared the cold, she loved her job and pursued her career as the Audiovisual Attachée for another couple of years in Prague in Czech Republic. An avid traveller, she discovered India over the years and one day fell in love with Mumbai. With luck on her side she came to India as the audiovisual Attachée for the French Consulate in the Maximum City in 2010. Since then, she races through SoBo and Andheri, when she is not Calcutta or Chennai, to meet the most intriguing lot of avant garde Indian cinema while promoting the French 7th art all over India. After her stint with the Consulate she has now associated with La Fabrique Films since 2013.
