Meet Bertrand Mandico and let’s talk about shorts! He will share his artistic vision and get back on his inspiration all along his career. An unmissable moment to delve deep into his mind!
Bertrand Mandico develops a dreamlike visual style combined with a unique non-naturalistic form of narration. Awarded and showcased in many festivals with his short films, he directs his first feature film in 2017 – LES GARÇONS SAUVAGES (THE WILD BOYS) – which received a great acclaim from the critics and the audience (winner of the Prix Louis Delluc for first feature). His second feature film, AFTER BLUE (PARADIS SALE), received the FIPRESCI award following its premiere at the Locarno Film Festival in 2021, and has been selected in many festivals such as TIFF, Sitges and Austin Fantastic Fest, where it won the Grand Prize.
