A first and exclusive at Main Film: Denis Côté, internationally renowned director, is honoring us with a workshop on documentary-fiction!
The making of a docu-fiction is not defined by precise conventions, so how do you find your way around? What are the challenges during the scripting, shooting and editing stages? This workshop will lead you to ask yourself the right questions in order to embark on the adventure of hybrid film.
Learning will be based on concrete examples from the instructor’s films, such as Wilcox and Les états nordiques.

Workshop is given in French but questions may be asked in English.

Denis Côté

Denis Côté (1973) (New Brunswick, Canada) founded Nihilproductions in the 90s and made about 15 short films. He was a journalist and film critic before directing his first feature film Les états nordiques in 2005. This was followed by Nos vies privées in 2007, which made the rounds of the international festival circuit. Carcasses (2009) was presented at the Directors’ Fortnight in Cannes while Curling, his fifth feature, won the Locarno Festival in 2010. Vic+Flo Saw a Bear (2013) won the Silver Bear at the Berlinale in Germany for its innovation. Denis Côté’s singular films have been shown in hundreds of cinematic events and have been the subject of some 40 retrospectives around the world.
