Bertrand Mandico

Bertrand Mandico graduated from the Gobelins school of animation. After his animated film Le Cavalier bleu (prize for the best project at the Annecy International Animation Film Festival), he turned to live action, first for commissioned films where he developed an unusual universe (videos, mini-series), then for his short fiction films with radical universes. He also writes feature films and continues to make numerous multi-format films. His latest filmic creations are the subject of exhibitions and installations. The program Hormona was released in theaters in 2015, gathering three of his films. In 2017 he shot the feature film Les Garçons sauvages (presented and awarded at the Venice Critics’ Week). This film was awarded in many festivals and is considered an emblematic work. He followed up with the medium-length science fiction film Ultra Pulpe (Cannes Critics’ Week) released in theaters as part of the Ultra Rêve program in the summer of 2018.
