Marc Dorcel is a French producer of pornographic films who founded the company Video Marc Dorcel. Besides producing films by himself, he also produces films in partnership with people like Michel Ricaud and Michel Barny. Dorcel is known for the long-running Pornochic film series, featuring many of Europe's most well known adult film stars.

Dorcel's projects are often filmed in exotic European locations, and have been awarded for their high production values: characterizing them as films with a degree of artfulness and attention to detail in hardcore pornography. Dorcel's contemporaries include the established pornographic director/producers Andrew Blake, Viv Thomas and Michael Ninn.

To help change the image of sexualities in this way, Marc Dorcel is backing the project of the Pascal Vanhoecke gallery for ARTPARIS+GUESTS[1]. Marc Dorcel also supports the AIDES association.
