In the beginning of 2000, after studying in history and anthropology, Dan Karo discovers an avid interest in short films and experimental films. In 2007, he joins the ranks of the Festival du nouveau cinéma as a coordinator and today he is a film programmer. In 2009, he co-curated with filmmaker Marie Losier, a month long program dedicated to Quebec cinema at the FIAF in New York City. His own directorial debut VACARME, 2011 ended up as a finalist at the Jutra Awards that same year. Shortly afterwards a documentary on cinema at work (L’OURS, 2013) earns him a spot at the Locarno film festival. In 2016, he completed his latest short CHÉRIE (QUAND JE PENES À TOI).
