Katarina Soukup

(En Anglais seulement)

Creative lead, content specialist, media artist, documentary filmmaker. Katarina Soukup brings with her almost ten years of experience as a documentary and multimedia producer with award-winning, internationally acclaimed Inuit filmmakers Igloolik Isuma Productions, the creative team behind the Canadian cinema classic Atanarjuat The Fast Runner (2000), winner of the Camera d’or at Cannes 2001. Her producing work with Isuma includes a number of documentaries and SILA, an interactive educational website produced with Telefilm’s New Media Fund in 2005. Soukup founded Catbird Productions with a desire to produce exciting, socially relevant independent documentary, short, fiction, and interactive projects. As a filmmaker, she seeks out projects that tell powerful human stories and reveal the extraordinary in the seemingly ordinary. Under Catbird, she has already produced several documentaries including Tusarnituuq! Nagano in the Land of the Inuit (2009) by Félix Lajeunesse. Before embarking in filmmaking, Soukup’s media art projects were presented at art venues in Austria, Germany, Japan, the Netherlands, the Czech Republic, the USA, and in Canada at the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO).
