Artist Bio

Driven by a passion for skateboarding, Jeremy Comte directed his first short documentary Feel the Hill at eighteen years old, landing him a world tour with the Banff Mountain Film Festival. Raised in the countryside and later graduating from Concordia University in Film Production, his connection with nature and curiosity for the human condition deepens with his travels around the globe. Comte is roused by psychological, raw narratives finding meaningful connections through poetic imagery. 

FAUVE premiered at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival where it was nominated for the Short Film Grand Jury Prize and received a Special Jury Award for Short Filmmaking. The film has won over 14 awards at international festivals including the Aspen Shortsfest (Best Drama), the Melbourne International Film Festival (City of Melbourne Award), the Palm Springs International ShortFest (Best of the Festival), and the Toronto International Film Festival (Short Cuts Award runner up).
