François Ozon (born 15 November 1967) is a French film director and screenwriter best known for films such as 8 Women (2002) and Swimming Pool (2003).

His films are well known for emcompassing multiple genres such as comedy (Sitcom - 1998; Potiche - 2010), musical comedy (8 Women - 2002), fantasy (Ricky - 2009), melodramas (Frantz - 2016) or erotic thriller (L'Amant Double - 2017). Ozon's style further oscillates between exuberant camp (again 8 Women - 2002) to grim naturalist aesthetics (again the social drama Ricky - 2009).

Trademarks of Ozon's films are the depiction of complex female characters, of alternative sexualities and more generally of deviations from social and familial norms. Some critics see him as one of the major directors of modern French cinema.
