Dominique Cabrera (born 21 December 1957 in Relizane, Algeria) is a French film director. She has taught filmmaking at La Fémis and at Harvard University. Her film Nadia et les hippopotames was screened in the Un Certain Regard section at the 1999 Cannes Film Festival. Additionally, her work has screened in Berlin Film Festival, the Toronto Film Festival, the Vienna International Film Festival, the Locarno Film Festival, the Rotterdam Film Festival, and in the New York Film Festival, among others.
Dominique Cabrera was born in 1957 in Relizane, Algeria and moved to France as a child, in 1962. She graduated from Paris' La Fémis film school in 1981, then known as the Institut des Hautes Etudes Cinématographiques.
Between 1982 and 1993, Cabrera directed five short films, documentaries, and works of fiction. Two films in the 1990s, Chronique d'une banlieue ordinaire and Une poste à la Courneuve, brought Cabrera early recognition.
After reading one of her scripts at a screenwriting competition in 1990, producer Didier Haudepin recognized Cabrera as an emerging talent. His support led to the production of her first feature film, L'autre côté de la mer, six years later.
