ANGEL HAMILTON emerged from the video aisles at Blockbuster where she worked as a clerk (obtaining valuable research) and dove right into assisting to remount Global Visions Film Festival in Edmonton. A graduate of Anthropology at Trent University, she worked as a producer’s assistant at Red Storm Productions and Purple Productions in British Columbia and then went on to obtain a certificate in documentary production at Capilano University Bosa Centre for Film & Animation. Her passion for food justice was sparked by working with the Britannia Community Centre to help mount the Stone Soup Food Film Festival. She directed personal films and produced a number of student productions before moving back to her hometown of Peterborough in 2012 where she co-founded Media Arts Peterborough to produce a web series about local artists. A three-time honoree of Trent Film Society’s Snowdance Film Festival, she maintains a passion for transformation through creative response and she works invisibly in the background facilitating art and expression in all forms. Most recently, she worked as co-producer on Lester Alfonso’s creative nonfiction project BIRTHMARK. These days, she’s exploring new ways to tell stories through video projection art at the Silent Hoop Jam with Peterborough Circus Arts Academy (PACA) and electronic arts festivals. She is the co founder of a Trent Radio Show on 92.7 FM with Carley Van Spronsen called “Health and Wellness Hour” every Tuesday from 5pm -6pm. She is currently in Peterborough Living Yoga teacher training school to become a yoga teacher and will be at the Peterborough Yoga Festival for Summer Solstice 2019 in the Children’s Village.
