Dawson City International Short Film Festival Artist in Residence

Michelle Latimer (March 11 - April 21, 2014) 

A Métis/Algonquin filmmaker, actor, and curator, Michelle’s goal is to use film & new media as a tool for social change. She is interested in exploring how sound and image can transform space to create a visceral experience that lends itself to greater cultural awareness and understanding. Her films have been described as “visual poems exploring humanity”, and are often experiments of creative form expressed from a personal point of view. She has just completed post-production on a feature length documentary, Alias, which premiered at HOT DOCS this year. Alias examines the inner world of gangsta rap and the hustle known as the rap-trap. It follows 5 struggling rappers/artists. Most recently she was named "one of Canada's top 10 filmmakers to watch" by Playback magazine.
