Rosie Dransfeld featured at HOT DOCS

By | Uncategorized

AMPIA is pleased to announce that this year’s Hot Docs’ Focus On retrospective will pay tribute to award-winning Edmonton producer and director Rosie Dransfeld.

The renowned documentary film festival, which takes place April 28-May 5 in Toronto, will screen five of the artist’s works, including three films she produced with the National Film Board: Beaverman (2002), The Dogwalker (2007), and Who Cares (2012), a powerful cinema vérité look at women caught in a cycle of addiction, violence and prostitution in Edmonton’s sex trade. The NFB is currently co-producing Dransfeld’s next documentary, Memento Mori.

Congratulations Rosie!

Jebb has hosted CBC’s  Just for Laughs  “All Access Pass” and has been a writer and performer with the Just for Laughs Festival, as well as for the Winnipeg Comedy Festival.  It is hard not to recognize Jebb from his eight years co-hosting the A-Channel’s “Big Breakfast” or as the host of City TV’s “Your City”.  We are delighted to have Jebb join us for The Rosies this year.
