Anne Goursaud is an accomplished film director and editor. It was Francis Ford Coppola who first spotted Anne's talent, giving her the chance to edit One from the Heart. Since that time, she has directed and edited a wide range of projects, and she has worked with some of the most highly acclaimed professionals in the movie industry.
Her directing credits include the dark thrillers Embrace of the Vampire and Poison Ivy II, both for New Line Cinema, and the erotic drama Love in Paris (Another 9 1/2 Weeks) for Trimark. Her editing credits include Francis Ford Coppola's teen classic The Outsiders, starring Matt Dillon and Tom Cruise, the Oscar-winning hit Bram Stoker's Dracula, starring Gary Oldman and Anthony Hopkins, and Ironweed, starring Jack Nicholson and Meryl Streep, for which they both received Oscar nominations.
Anne also edited Bruce Beresford's romantic comedies Her Alibi and Crimes of the Heart, John Duigan's epic drama Wide Sargasso Sea, Janusz Kaminski's horror flick Lost Souls, and the sequel to Chinatown, The Two Jakes, directed by and starring Jack Nicholson. Most recently, she edited Universal Pictures' innovative Outkast movie-musical Idlewild and the edgy new independent feature Expired, which premiered at Cannes.
Anne just completed work as writer-producer on the feature-length documentary Ultrasuede: The Search for Halston, which will be released in theaters in 2011. She is attached to direct Finding Contessa with Val Kilmer, Coronado with Stephen Dorff and Camilla Belle, as well as Killer Odds, which she co-wrote. She is developing a new script based on the true story of actress Jean Seberg, Little American.
Anne received a License en Histoire de L’Art from the Sorbonne and a Masters in Fine Arts from Columbia University. She is a member of the Directors Guild of America, the Editors Guild, A.C.E, the Academy of Arts and Sciences and SACD.
