Born on the 7th of January 1969, Thierry Jobin is, since 2011, the Artistic Director of the most popular and growing film festival in the french part of Switzerland, the Fribourg International Film Film Festival (FIFF). Restless filmlover since his very early years, he was 15 years old when he had his first opportunity to share his passion through journalism and film criticism for 25 years, until FIFF called him in numerous newspapers and medias such as Le Temps in Geneva (1998-2011). Thierry Jobin is an expert for the swiss fund Visions Sud Est and for Final Cut in Venice, the postproduction fund for Africa launched in 2013 by Venezia, Amiens and Fribourg.
