Sherien Barsoum

Sherien Barsoum is a Toronto-based filmmaker motivated to tell social issue stories. Sherien recently produced the much-anticipated feature House of Z (Tribeca 2017), following celebrity fashion designer Zac Posen. She was the story consultant on the Oscar shortlisted short Frame 394 (HotDocs 2016) - a provocative look at the police shooting death of Walter Scott. Her first feature, Colour Me (2011), was a bold exploration of black identity narratives. When she’s not making films, Sherien runs Reelworld, a social impact film festival in Toronto.
