SOCAN member Pierre-Philippe “Pilou” Côté – also known as singer-songwriter Peter Henry Phillips – won the Best Original Score Iris Award for his work on director Robin Aubert’s film Les Affamés, at the 2018 Gala des artisans Québec Cinéma, held in Studio 42 of Maison de Radio-Canada on May 29, 2018.

The movie went on to win four more trophies during the gala, including Best International Achievement, which means even more international exposure for Côté, who was included in SOCAN Words & Music magazine’s Top 10 for 2017, and also participated in our most recent edition of the Kenekt Québec Song Camp.

Ten SOCAN members were also nominated in the Best Original Score category. SOCAN congratulates Pilou for his first Gala Québec Cinéma Award. For a complete list of the winners at the Gala du cinéma québécois, visit the organization’s official website.
