Director's Bio: 
Catrina is an independent producer & artist working in documentary film & (multi)media arts. At the National Film Board of Canada she worked on CitizenShift and then as Associate Producer in Vancouver. Much of her time at the NFB was spent producing community oriented ‘digital storytelling’ workshops such as ‘Our World’ ‘Tales of Bridgeview’ and the ‘Colouring Book‘, enabling youth to use their voices to create socially relevant short films. She has recently co-produced 13 short films entitled “Our First Voices” about First Nations language revitalization efforts, commissioned by Knowledge Network in partnership with the First Peoples Heritage Language & Culture Council. Recently, as an independent artist, she participated in the Spatial Poetics IX event at the VIVO Media Arts Gallery in conjunction with the Powell Street Festival. Her piece entitled “Okosama Lunch” was an installation done in a Japanese Mizudansu (kitchen cupboard) and had a series of paintings & sculptures that she created based on notions of childhood in Japan. This piece was done in collaboration with Asa Mori (animator) and Alison Maddaugh (Landscape Architect). With a background in Fine Arts & Anthropology, Catrina’s passion lies in collaboratively creating work that is both aesthetically intriguing and encourages social change.
