Feven Ghebremariam


Born in Saudi Arabia to Eritrean parents, Feven Ghebremariam immigrated to Montreal in 1988. Her interest in media and the arts led her to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Communication Studies at the University of Windsor. She gained first-hand film experience in a documentary class where she co-directed Dry Your Eyes Rwanda, a film focusing on the resilience of Rwandan genocide survivors living in the small city of Windsor, Ontario. This memorable experience inspires Feven until this day to provide a platform for immigrant voices.

In 2012, she directed Coming Home to Boon, a Super 8mm documentary portrait which premiered at the Festival du Nouveau Cinema in 2013. In the same year, Feven enrolled in a six-month intensive program in documentary directing at Institut National de l’Image et du Son (INIS). This led her to direct The Other Side of Her Path, a short film featuring a young Moroccan student and her venture into the liberating world of improvised music.

In 2014, Feven co-directed Jeunes ailleurs, vieilles ici, an academic documentary commissioned by UQÀM's Research Chair on Aging and Diversity. Today, Feven is co-writing and co-directing a futuristic documentary entitled Camfranglais with Mylène Augustin.
