Jacques Audiard (born 30 April 1952) is a French film director and screenwriter.
He has won several awards: among others two César Awards for Best Director (for The Beat That My Heart Skipped and A Prophet) and a Palme d'Or (for Dheepan). In spite of their gloomy tone, his films generally have a Happy Ending, which is unusual for French auteur films.
He is the son of prolific screenwriter and dialoguist Michel Audiard.
