Mia Hansen-Løve (born 5 February 1981) is a French film director, screenwriter and former actress. Her film The Father of My Children, won the Special Jury Prize in the Un Certain Regard section at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival. In 2016, she won the Silver Bear for Best Director for her film Things to Come at the 66th Berlin International Film Festival.
Hansen-Løve was born on 5 February 1981 in Paris. Her parents, Laurence and Ole Hansen-Løve, are both philosophy professors.
In 2001, she enrolled in the Conservatoire for Dramatic Arts in Paris, but left in 2003 and began writing reviews for the film magazine Cahiers du cinéma until 2005. Meanwhile, she directed several shorts, including Contre-coup (2005), which starred Louis Garrel and Lolita Chammah.
Hansen-Løve’s third feature was the semi-autobiographical Goodbye First Love. Hansen-Løve cast actress Lola Créton after seeing her in Bluebeard. Her husband, who was with her at the time of the viewing, subsequently cast Créton in one of his films as well. The film premiered at the 2011 Locarno International Film Festival, where it received a special mention from the Jury.
In November 2013, Hansen-Løve began filming on Eden, a drama about a young man named Paul who discovers the burgeoning French house music scene during the early 90s. The film was inspired and co-written by her brother Sven, who had been part of the 90s club scene as a DJ. Hansen-Løve went through multiple producers while trying to make the film, as obtaining the rights to the music she wanted to use was both time-consuming and expensive. Actors Greta Gerwig and Brady Corbet starred in the film. The film premiered at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival.
During promotion for Eden, Hansen-Løve announced that her next film Things to Come (L'Avenir) would star Isabelle Huppert as a philosophy teacher whose seemingly perfect life begins to fall apart when her husband leaves her and her children move away from home. The film was completed in 2016 and premiered in competition at the 66th Berlin International Film Festival where Hansen-Løve won the Silver Bear for Best Director.
Hansen-Løve is the younger sister of Sven Hansen-Løve, who was a successful DJ in the 90s and who was the inspiration and co-writer for her film Eden.
