Three films by former students at the Côté Court Film Festival
From 6th to 16th June 2018, the 27th edition of the Côté Court film festival features three films made by former students from Atelier de Sèvres in its programme. Magdalena Froger, Arash Nassiri and Jules Cruveiller won the Grand Prix Côté court/Prix André S. Labarthe. We take the opportunity to look back over their respective – and different – paths.
Three films made by Art Foundation alumni
Magdalena Froger is in attendance as the director of "Les intranquilles", a 13-minute colour film. Born in 1993 in Paris, she joined ECAL (Ecole Cantonale d'Art de Lausanne) in 2013 where she obtained a bachelor's degree in cinema.
Arash Nassiri directed "City of Tales", a 21-minute colour film. This young Franco-Iranian artist was born in Teheran in 1986 and lives and works in Paris. After his Art foundation at Atelier de Sèvres, he joined the Beaux-Arts de Paris, then spent a year in Berlin to study the relationship between art and technology. He then went to ENSAD (école nationale des Arts décoratifs) to study photography and film, before finishing his studies at the prestigious Fresnoy de Tourcoing.
Lastly, Jules Cruveiller presents his film "Fuite", which won the Grand Prix Côté court/Prix André S. Labarthe award. Born in Paris in 1989, Jules started out by studying philosophy at the Sorbonne, before moving on to artistic studies. After his Art foundation at Atelier de Sèvres, he studied at École Nationale Supérieure d'Arts de Paris-Cergy from which he graduated in 2015.
