Denis Côté, born in New Brunswick, Canada, has gained a solid reputation as an independent filmmaker on both the local and international scenes since 2005. After directing many short films and working a few years as a journalist and film critic (1995-2005), he makes his feature film debut with Drifting States. Winner at the Locarno FF and elsewhere, he follows up with Our Private Lives (2007) that also tours the international festival circuit. In 2008, All that She Wants wins the Directing Prize at Locarno. In 2010, Curling wins the Best Director and Best Actor Awards at Locarno. In 2012, Denis Côté offers a film-essay entitled Bestiaire, that receives unexpected praise (over a 100 international festivals) and is theatrically released in France, the US and Germany. Since 2009, Denis Côté’s work has been the subject of some twenty retrospectives around the world.
