Amanda Strong
The Best Short Film Award - Indigo Trailer - Canada
  
Amanda Strong
Director - Animator - Producer
 
For her talent as a filmmaker in the brilliant concept of her short film Indigo, which reflects the soul of an artist that thinks outside the box on every level, Amanda Strong is the recipient of TheWIFTS Best Short Film 2014.

Scene from Indigo

A filmmaker and media artist, Amanda Strong works between Toronto and Vancouver. Her work seeks to create meaningful bridges via the creation of imaginary worlds, crossing traditional film genres of documentary, animation and narrative. Strong achieves this artistic collaboration by making use of diverse media: film, photography and illustration. An important aspect of her life is her engagement with community, and Amanda has curated, facilitated, programmed and taught youth all across Canada.

Amanda Strong's latest short animation Indigo was selected for 2014 Cannes Short Film Corner and was an official selection of the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival. Amanda's work has been exhibited and screened worldwide, and has won several awards.

Amanda Strong is currently working on two projects: Honey for Sale, a feature animated documentary; and Napoleon, a personal animated short.

Strong has received grants from Ontario Arts Council, Canada Council for the Arts, the National Film Board of Canada, and most notably, she received the 2013 K.M. Hunter Media Arts Award via the Ontario Arts Council.
