Deneyimler: Jaco van Dormael

The guest of the EXPERIENCES section of the Festival is Jaco Van Dormael, one of the cult directors of European Cinema. The director's last feature film, The Brand New Testament, which was screened at the Directors' Fortnight section at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, and was selected as the Belgian entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 88th Academy Awards, will be screened at the festival along with director’s two short films. The artist will share his experiences with the festival followers in a Masterclass on March 27th.

Jaco Van Dormael was born on February 9, 1957 in Belgium. Van Dormael studied filmmaking at the INSAS in Brussels, where he wrote and directed his first short film, Maedeli la brèche (1981), which received the Honorary Foreign Film Award at the Student Academy Awards. Van Dormael's feature debut, Toto le héros (1991), won the Caméra d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival.

Five years later, Le huitième jour (1996) played at Cannes, where his two leading actors, Daniel Auteuil and Pascal Duquenne, were jointly awarded the prize for Best Actor. His third feature film, Mr. Nobody (2009), won six Magritte Awards, including Best Film and Best Director.
