Follow Your North Star

Updated: Mar 15

The legendary Director, Filmmaker & Actor, Jackie Torrens is a force to be reckoned with. She is well known for their unique visual style and love for all things quirky and offbeat. 

But that's not all - Torrens is also an award-winning writer and actor, and together with producer Jessica Brown, they co-own the Halifax-based production company Peep Media Inc. Their documentary films have taken the world by storm, including Edge of East, My Week On Welfare, Small Town Show Biz, and their latest masterpiece Bernie Langille Wants To Know What Happened To Bernie Langille (which won Best Director at WIFT-AT, Best Documentary at AIFF, and Best Atlantic Filmmaker at Lunenberg Doc Festival). 

But Torrens' talents don't stop there. They've also directed two films for Telltale Productions, Free Reins and the feature documentary Radical Age. And if that's not enough, she's done numerous radio documentaries for CBC, including The Poet Laureate of Youth Now (which won the Atlantic Journalism award) and Camp Mini Ha Ha (which won the CBC Award of Excellence). 

So get ready to be inspired by the incredible Jackie Torrens. We can't wait to hear Jackie's incredible journey of following her north star, to create in spite of doubt.

We are honored to welcome Jackie Torrens as the Keynote Speaker for SNC 2024.
