About Dawn George

Dawn George makes films, videos, photographs, and installations with the living things she discovers in the wild! Her DIY approach to filmmaking reflects her appreciation and respect for movement, nature, science, and sound. She can often be found in the garden filming insects and plants; in the kitchen brewing the latest batch eco-developer; or in the forest recording a stream. Her experimental works have included mesmerizing images of time lapse mold and plant growth, intimate moments with insects, and eco-processed film from fruits, vegetables, and weeds. Accompanying her films are intricate sound designs crafted with sounds recorded from her kitchen and collected in nature.

She has participated in residencies at the Independent Imaging Retreat “Film Farm” in Mt. Forest, Ontario, the Handmade Film Institute in Colorado, and the Ayatana Artists' Research Program, in Gatineau, Quebec. Dawn’s works have screened in festivals and galleries around the planet including the Images Festival, Festival du Nouveau Cinema, Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival, the8fest, Braziers, Kaunas IFF, WNDX, Imagine Science Film Festival, the Gladstone Hotel’s GrowOp Exhibition, The Dalhousie Arts Gallery, and the Confederation Centre Art Gallery. Her work has been supported by the Atlantic Filmmakers Cooperative, Arts Nova Scotia, and the Canada Council for the Arts.

Dawn is a founding member of the Handmade Film Collective based in Kjipuktuk in Mi’kma’ki (Halifax, Nova Scotia).
