"A Hauntingly beautiful and surprisingly moving masterwork of personal loss and self-discovery." -Laurence Kardish
Ingrid Veninger is a producer, director, actor, writer born in Bratislava, Slovakia. She immigrated to Canada with her parents in the 1970s and began acting in her early teens. The "DIY queen of Canadian filmmaking," she is a multitalented filmmaker. She began as an actress before producing award-winning dramas and documentaries, and then writing and directing her own shorts and features. Heralded by the Canadian Film Institute’s Tom McSorley as “one of Canada’s most dynamic, perceptive and prolific film talents,” she emerged by the early 2010s as a major force on the Canadian indie-film scene and the catalyst of a new wave of micro-budget productions.
