Director Biography - Lloyd Frost

Lloyd Frost is an Canadian filmmaker whose short films blend narrative and documentary genres. Themes have included totalitarian and authoritarian regimes - past and present - and living with terrorism attacks.

His multiple award-winning 2013 film 'In Everyone's Eyes (en todas las miradas)' and the more pointed director’s cut 'In Everyone's Eyes – El ultimo! (2018) are poetic, slyly subversive looks at free speech and human rights in Cuba. 'The Sun Is Rising' (2015) asks if there is a key to talking about terrorism attacks. 'The Berlin Waltz' (2023) is his latest film.

Lloyd's's debut album ‘The Sun Is Rising & Other True Stories’ (2015) with genre-crossing tracks was released with a live performance at SAW Gallery, Ottawa and an exhibit of his film-related images at Vistek. He is presently working on his second album, which includes this film's theme song 'Berlin Waltz'. His travel stories and photographs have appeared in The Boston Globe, The Globe and Mail, The Sydney Morning Herald and other newspapers.

Lloyd received his medical degree from McGill University, and specialized in Psychiatry. He lives in Ottawa.
