Angel Hamilton New Paradigm Storyteller

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.
