Amanda Thomson is a filmmaker from the unceded Coast Salish territory commonly known as Vancouver, BC. Her work focuses on perspective, the subconscious, and other things she can’t quite put her finger on. Yet she is drawn to film by the tactile quality of the medium and by its shifting nature in grain and cultural significance. She studied Film, Video and Integrated Media at the Emily Carr University of Art + Design, Vancouver, receiving her undergrad in 2009. She has screened work in festivals from San Francisco to Montreal and presented programs by the Iris Film Collective at artist-run film labs in Paris, Berlin, and Rotterdam.
