Dawn George is a Canadian independent media artist working in film, video and installation. She is a graduate of Ryerson’s Radio and Television Arts Program and the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York. Ms. George received her film and media arts training through the Atlantic Filmmakers Cooperative (One-Minute Film Program) and the Centre for Art Tapes (Media Arts Scholarship Program). She is an advocate for film co-ops and artist run centres.
Her DIY approach to filmmaking reflects her appreciation and respect for movement, nature, and sound. She often uses the recorded moving image in combination with time-based and computer generated effects to explore ideas of the environment and society. Her works have recently screened at Antimatter [media art], FLEX Fest, and the Dalhousie Art Gallery.
