French filmmaker, writer and actor Cyril Collard is best known for his semi-autobiographical directing debut Les Nuits Fauves/ Savage Nights (1992) the story of an AIDS-afflicted filmmaker. At the beginning of his career, Collard assisted director Maurice Pialat and directed six music videos and a few French television programs. He has also acted in films. In 1989, Collard penned the novel that later became his most famous film. He was the first person to ever be nominated for the three highest categories of the French Cesar Awards (their version of the American Oscars): "Best Director, Best Film, and Best Debut Director" in one year. Unfortunately, Collard died of AIDS a few days before he was to accept his award for "Best Debut Director."
