Fauve is a Canadian short drama film, directed by Jérémy Comte and released in 2018. The film centres on two boys (Félix Grenier and Alexandre Perreault) looking for adventure near an open pit mine, who are soon drawn into a dangerous situation as their power game spins out of control.
The film premiered at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival, where it won a Special Jury Prize in the short films program. It won several awards at other film festivals throughout the year, including the top award at the Palm Springs International Festival of Short Films, an Honourable Mention from the Best Canadian Short Film jury at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival, and the Grand Jury Prize at the 24FPS International Short Film Festival.
In January 2019, it was announced as an Academy Award for Best Live Action Short Film nominee at the 91st Academy Awards, and in February it was announced as a Canadian Screen Award nominee for Best Live Action Short Drama at the 7th Canadian Screen Awards.
