Masterclass: Denis Côté = Masterclass: Denis Côté = Masterclass: Denis Côté
On the Wednesday (10:30) it will be the turn of the Canadian Denis Côté, a filmmaker with experience at numerous international festivals who will participate in Zabaltegi-Tabakalera with Répertoire des villes disparues / Ghost Town Anthology, presented in competition at the Berlinale.
The latest work from Denis Côté (Perth-Andover, Canada. 1973) was presented in the Official Selection at the last Berlinale. Since 2005, Denis Côté has gained a solid reputation as an independent filmmaker on both the Quebecois and international scenes. After directing many short films and working for a few years as a journalist and film critic (1995-2005), he made his feature film debut with Les états nordiques (Drifting States, 2005). Worthy of note in his filmography, which has space for both fiction and documentaries, are titles such as Curling (2010), which received the Best Director and Best Actor awards at the Locarno Festival, and Vic + Flo ont vu un ours (Vic + Flow Saw a Bear, 2013), earning him the Alfred Bauer Prize at the Berlin Festival. He competed for the Golden Bear at the German competition with his two most recent works, Boris sans Béatrice (Boris without Béatrice, 2016) and Repertoire des villes disparues (Ghost Town Anthology) (Zabaltegi-Tabakalera).
