Sherien Barsoum is a Toronto-based filmmaker and impact producer. Her first feature, ‘Colour Me’ (2011), is a bold exploration of black identity narratives. Most recently, Sherien produced ‘Babe, I Hate To Go’ – a short film exploring the life of a Jamaican migrant worker. Sherien was the story consultant on the Oscar-shortlisted short ‘Frame 394’ – a provocative look at the police shooting death of Walter Scott and a co-producer of ‘House of Z’ – following celebrity designer Zac Posen, and the first feature film bought and distributed by Condé Nast. When she’s not making and sharing films, Sherien programs Reelworld – a social impact film festival in Toronto.
