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!
