French cinema debuts

I'm keen to track down as many new French feature film debuts as I can. Along the lines of great titles like It's Easier For a Camel... and She's One of Us - it seems like women directors are making especially great first films.

Anyone have any good recommendations (preferably on DVD with English subs)? Anyone seen, or know anything about upcoming releases of these:

Lola Doillon's Et toi, t'es sur qui?
Anne Fassio's Je deteste les enfants des autres
Zina Modiano's Vie privee
Cheyenne Carron's Ecorches
Celine Sciamma's Naissance des pieuvres
Nadine Labaki's Caramel
Anne Le Ny's Ceux qui restent
Mia Hansen-Love's Tout est pardonne
Audrey Estrougo's Regarde-moi

Thanks, all.

I recommend "Ceux qui restent" (trailer in french here ), and "Caramel" to me, is a lebanese version of Tonie Marshall's Venus Beauty Institute.
Those films were in french theaters this summer, you have to wait 6 months for a possible release on disc, I don't think first movies have a chance to be english friendly.

That is just wrong, I love this movie, Nathalie Baye was awesome in it.

I didn't mean that to criticize "Venus Beauté", but "Caramel" is about women working in a beauty salon.
The treatment is different, it is refreshing (some actresses are not professionnal) and it has lebanese taste,
but the story seems to be inspired by Tonie Marshall's film.
