Nettie Wild

One of Canada’s most respected documentary filmmakers, Nettie Wild is now exploring new narrative directions. She has a passion for catalyzing effective change by tapping into the poetic, the sensual, the dimensional, and the unexpected. Her recent film Koneline: Our Land Beautiful explored a more spacious visual approach that reflected the culture, message and landscape of the Tahltan First Nation.

Her innovative projection mapping project, Uninterrupted, cinematically transformed Vancouver’s Cambie Bridge into a wild B.C. river – immersing audiences of all world views in the incredible journey of migrating sockeye salmon. Her next step: porting the experience into Virtual Reality.
