    Bertrand Mandico

    France

    Above all, the feature-length format is all about the pleasure of being able to work intensively with your actresses and actors.

    Born in 1971 in Toulouse, Bertrand Mandico graduated from the film directing programme at the Gobelins animation school in Paris. Over the years, Bertrand has cultivated a unique aesthetic and a flare for dark humour that juxtaposes macabre elements and burlesque. He has enriched his cinematic studies with various still format publications, photography, collage and drawings. Bertrand has also worked on promoting forgotten or underappreciated filmmakers (he programmed a Walerian Borowczyk retrospective in Warsaw). His audiovisual creations (a total of 40 short films, TV-commercials and musical films) have been awarded various prizes. His first short film THE BLUE HORSE RIDER won the Annecy Prize Grant in 1998.
    HE WAS EDDY'S DOG was part of the 2001 Cannes Film Festival’s short selection. His project BORO IN THE BOX, an irreverent portrait of Walerian Borowczyk, won the Clermont-Ferrand Festival Grant in 2008. THE WILD BOYS, selected at Venice IFF, will be Bertrand Mandico’s first feature length film. In 2018, his short film APOCALYPSE AFTER will have a special screening in Cannes for the 57th Semaine de la Critique.
