Michael Filtz: Montréal-based teacher, musician and coffee drinker

Thanks for stopping by!

I’m Michael Filtz, I teach Cinema and Communications at Dawson College, in Montréal.

I grew up in California and have an undergraduate degree in environmental studies and film studies from UC Santa Barbara and a master’s degree in journalism from UC Berkeley. Over the years, I’ve worked in and around the startup scenes in San Francisco and Berlin, with a variety of organizations and news publications. I’ve also covered enterprise tech in Germany and Berlin’s startup scene for publications like The New Yorker and ZDNet. 

I’ve been teaching at Dawson College since 2019.

I enjoy running, drinking coffee, drinking beer, and playing music. I also make music in an electronic duo called Tolemn.
