Kaveh is an award-winning filmmaker and musician from Montreal. His work confronts the gap between the two arts: creating films that have the intuitive and immediate feel of music, and creating music that has the evocative energy of film.
He has directed both fiction and documentary films, music videos, and television series. His films have played at over thirty international festivals, from which he has won multiple awards. He has shot in such diverse locations as Mexico, South Africa, Honduras, France, Nunavut, China, and French Guyana. His first feature film “Ricochet” is currently in development.
Kaveh has degrees in both Film Production and Jazz Studies from Concordia University. Much of his time as a musician is dedicated to Bell Orchestre, an avant-chamber ensemble in which he plays trumpet, keyboards, and an array of analog and electronic instruments.
In recent years, Bell Orchestre has released two critically-acclaimed albums, won a Juno award, toured Europe and North America extensively, collaborated with the Brooklyn Symphony Orchestra and LaLaLa Human Steps, and done a composition residency at the Banff Centre for the Arts.
Kaveh has also composed music for films (including his own), orchestra, dance, and theatre.
