Director Bio
Jacqueline Samuda started directing in the theatre (Los Angeles Critics’ Dramalogue Award for Zastrozzi at Company of Angels).  After her first two short films, LOOK (winner, ReelFast 2002) and The Sky’s The Limit, she attended Women in the Director’s Chair Workshop at the Banff Centre, where she made London Calling (a 7-minute short based on her feature script). 

In 2003, she directed two shorts for Vancouver Film School’s Webchannel and was selected by the Directors’ Guild of Canada and other industry associations to be one of the five “Crazy8s” directors.  The resulting 9-minute film 50 Questions screened at the 2003 Vancouver International Film Festival, the Whistler Independent Film Festival where it was named Best Short Runner-Up, and at the inaugural Vidfest screening in Vancouver in June, 2004 and the Women in Film Summer Short festival in July, 2004. She is currently developing her feature directing debut project, BREAD, with support from broadcaster Movie Central. Jacqueline also has extensive acting and writing credits, available as separate lists.
