Kaveh Nabatian
Canada, Iran

Kaveh is an Iranian-Canadian artist whose evocative filmmaking has brought to life stories from the margins of society and across the world: Cuba, Haiti, Nunavut, India, and beyond. His film work ranges from "A Crack in Everything", a feature doc about Leonard Cohen, to masterminding the Rotterdam-premiering, experimental, seven-director anthology feature "The Seven Last Words", to his award-winning feature narrative debut, the Cuba-set and shot "Sin La Habana".

As a composer and trumpet player, he’s toured the world and released several critically-acclaimed albums with his Juno award-winning band Bell Orchestre.
