Gold Winner Andrea Dorfman

Silver Winner Stephanie Young 

Bronze Winner Jason Eisener

The poppy and vibrant Heartbeat is filmmaker Andrea Dorfman’s third feature, but the first to actually screen in Halifax. That’s “pretty cool,” Dorfman says. She’s currently busy on a National Film Board documentary following a human rights group in Canada and Kenya, but the director is also excited to be taking Heartbeat to India for an upcoming festival. Then it’s back to Kenya again in the winter. A globe-trotting filmmaker calling Halifax home; we think you’re “pretty cool,” Andrea.
