Jean-André Fieschi (1942–2009), nicknamed JAF, was a French filmmaker and critic. He wrote and worked for Cahiers du Cinéma between 1961 and 1968. He was one of the principal co-authors of Cinema: A Critical Dictionary (1980), a historical work by Richard Roud. From 1991 onwards, he gave courses on the history of cinema and montage at l’École supérieure d’Arts Visuels de Genève. Fieschi directed and co-directed a great number of films, including several episodes of the legendary Cinéma de notre temps series, one of which on filmmaker Jean Rouch and another on Pasolini. His interest in video is reflected in his Nouveaux mystères de New-York (1976–1981) and the expansive video-journal Le jeu des voyages (1987–2005). He is known for L’accompagnement (1969), Théâtre (1980) and Cuixart, permanencia del barroco (1963). In 2005, he co-directed La Fabrique du Conte d’été with Françoise Etchegaray. His publications on cinema include La voix de Jacques Tati (1999) and L’animal écran (1999), co-written with Patrick Lacoste and Patrick Tort.
