Andrea DorfmanI work as a filmmaker, animator, cinematographer and artist and I am a graduate of McGill University and the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. Since 1995, I’ve made numerous experimental and dramatic short films as well as two feature films, Parsley Days (2000) and Love That Boy (2003) , and the documentary, Sluts (2005). How to Be Alone (2009), a video poem I made in collaboration with singer songwriter Tanya Davis, became a viral hit on YouTube, garnering over 5 million views to date. For the past few years I’ve been working in animation at the National Film Board of Canada making the Emmy nominated, Flawed (2010), and Big Mouth (2012) as well as creating mini-documentaries for the charitable human rights organization, the Equality Effect. Currently I am developing two feature films, Heartbeat, in collaboration with Tanya Davis and The Playground with Jennifer Deyell as well as working with the NFB on a documentary about the Equality Effect’s, “160 Girls” project and on an interactive website about Fogo Island, Newfoundland. I occasionally teach film and video classes at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design and I’m one of 4 co-creators of Blowhard, a thematic, live storytelling series. I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia, with my boyfriend, Dave, his kids Max and Sydney (half of the time) and a cat.
