Director Biography - Brianne Nord-Stewart

Brianne writes, directs, edits, and produces films, web-series, commercials, and music videos.

While obtaining her bachelor of media arts from Emily Carr University (2009), Brianne realized her proclivity in exploring taboo. Most specifically: awkward comedies about sex. (She’s even won a bunch of awards and stuff.)

Brianne gained international recognition on the festival circuit with her multi-award-winning short film, TROLLS (2009), which received an honorable mention at the Academy Accredited™ Clermont Ferrand Int’l Short Film Festival. Her subsequent short, THE PROVIDER (2011), garnered multiple awards, earning Brianne a Legacy Filmworks Award (2012), and Shaw Media Fearless Female Director Award (2013).

In 2014, Brianne wrote, directed, and produced two music videos and two short films, participated in the Women in the Director’s Chair Workshop, worked in camera on season one of FARGO, received a Harold Greenberg Shorts-to-Features award, shadowed director Allan Arkush on the series finale of Lifetime’s THE WITCHES OF EAST END, all the while developing two cable comedy pilots and two feature films.

In 2015, Brianne wrote, directed, and produced her first TV commercials, completed post on her Brightlight Pictures short film, BEAT AROUND THE BUSH (2016), penned the first draft of the feature film of the same concept with support from The Harold Greenberg Fund and CreativeBC, and spent part of the summer in Europe directing two music videos for Swiss-Canadian artist and 2016 Eurovision finalist, RYKKA.

Brianne began 2016 by apprentice directing beside Zach Lipovsky on Disney's new adventure comedy MECH-X4, written by Steve Marmel. In the spring, Brianne directed and produced a digital comedy series, YOUNG & RECKLESS, created by Andrea Shawcross and Devon Ferguson, which will be broadcast on Telus Optik VOD as a web-series. Brianne is continuing development as producer/director on the dark comedy series NO FIXED ADDRESS. By summer, Brianne directed two new music videos; her third with RYKKA, and first with Vancouver’s Sadie Campbell. And finally, BEAT AROUND THE BUSH began its festivus circuit in 2016 with official selections at Cleveland International, Newport Beach, DC Shorts and Arizona International where it won Best Comedy Short.

Brianne has garnered numerous awards including Shaw Media’s Fearless Female Director Award, The Harold Greenberg Fund’s Shorts-to-Features Award, and the Telus Banff World Media Film Festival Fellowship.
