Ryerson University, School of Image Arts Visiting Artist Program presents:

FILMMAKER FRANCES-ANNE SOLOMON
PUBLIC LECTURE, JANUARY 22, 7pm - FREE
School of Image Arts, Ryerson University, Toronto, ON
122 Bond St., Room 307

Please join us for a lecture by filmmaker Frances-Anne Solomon on January 22, in the School of Image Arts, Ryerson University. Solomon is an award-winning filmmaker, writer, producer, curator and entrepreneur in film, TV, radio, theatre, and new media. She will be artist-in-residence in the film program in the School of Image Arts for the Winter 2019 Semester.

Born in England of Trinidadian parents, Solomon was raised and educated in the Caribbean and Canada before moving to Great Britain where she built a successful career with the BBC as a TV Drama Producer and Executive Producer. She also produced and directed films and television programs through her production company Leda Serene Films. She is the founder and CEO of the Caribbean Tales Media Group, based in Barbados and Toronto, a group of companies that creates, produces, markets, and sells Caribbean-themed film and television content for global audiences. The Caribbean Tales Media Group supports other initiatives including: RED HOT, promoting new work by emerging creators of color; CineFAM – that supports bold film stories by Women Creators of Color, and #INTERSECT – film narratives by Queer and Trans Filmmakers of Color.

In 2010, together with Caribbean cultural industries specialist Dr. Keith Nurse, media personality and producer Lisa Wickham, businessman Dr. Terrence Farrell and filmmaker Mary Wells, she launched Caribbean Tales Worldwide Distribution, the first-of-its-kind film distribution company in the English speaking Caribbean, dedicated to the monetization of Caribbean diasporic content.

Solomon began her television career at Banyan Productions in Trinidad, studied Theatre at the University of Toronto. She trained as a film director in the UK at Bristol University and the prestigious BBC Drama Directors Program.

Inspired by the life and times of Mr. Ulric Cross, political activist in the 50s and 60s, Solomon’s acclaimed feature film, HERO, makes its Canadian theatrical premiere on Thursday, February 28, 2019, at the Royal Cinema, 608 College Street, Toronto.

The lecture is free and open to the public.

The School of Image Arts’ visiting artist program is designed to enhance the school’s programs by bringing artists to share their expertise with students through in-class critiques, seminars, and public lectures open to the Ryerson community and the general public. The School of Image Arts’ mandate is to deliver comprehensive undergraduate and graduate education in the linked disciplines of film, photography and integrated digital arts. The curriculum embraces a balance of theory and practice, fine art and commercial production, while nourishing critical thinking and freedom of expression. Each program recognizes the vital contribution of art, design, and visual and critical studies in their respective fields of specialization.
