Isabelle's writing talent was first noticed when she was only 18. Her novel "LA GRANDE DÉVOREUSE" (The Great Devourer) received an award at "Le Prix du Jeune Ecrivain Francophone" and was published by Les Editions de La Découverte. 10 years later it was published again, in Ivory Coast this time, by NEI.
From 1993 to 2005, Isabelle used to write for several news magazines and publications like the very prestigious REVUE NOIRE, dedicated to African Contemporary Art.
In 2000 she graduated from FÉMIS, that is said to be the best Film School in France. She specialised in screenwriting and assisted young French and International filmakers with their scripts.
Meanwhile she directed her own short films and documentaries, all of them widely screened in international Film Festivals and/or multi-awarded.
Since 2007, Isabelle both works on very popular TV programs and develops more "art house" cinema projects.
Born in Ivory Coast in a mixed French/Ivorian family, Isabelle Boni-Claverie lives and works in Paris.
