BIOGRAPHY

Brenda Keesal follows her own road. Writer, filmmaker, blogger and digital storyteller, her wicked, emotionally charged work lights up every screen.

Her first film Wanker won a Silver Plaque at the Chicago Film Festival, was the Closing Film of the New Orleans Film & Video Festival, garnered cult status and rave reviews and was voted one of the best movies of the year in Canada. Her second, the polarizing, critically-acclaimed JACK & ELLA played in festivals all over the world, enjoyed sold-out runs in Toronto and Montreal and still plays on Canada’s top movie channels and Roger’s On-Demand.

Her popular blog Burns the Fire has been chosen by WordPress as one of its best, four times. She blogs for Huffington Post, as well.

Voted one of Montreal’s favorite filmmakers, Brenda is currently creating a full-length multi-platform story for the internet, in her signature style. 

Brenda graduated from Bialik High School- the notorious breeding ground for Jewish professionals and funny people, and the prestigious Concordia University Film School- housed in the basement at the time.
