Annette Clarke

Annette Clarke’s love of storytelling began around a kitchen table playing poker for pennies in a small community in Newfoundland. She honed her story instincts travelling with a 16mm projector and NFB film cans in the trunk of a car and fell in love with documentary when she witnessed the transformative power of its mirror. An accomplished and award-winning producer with 100 hours of screen time, Clarke is committed to stories that challenge stereotypes and shift the usual lens on the world. Her current productions, directed by both emerging and established talent, cross paths with courageous young girls and brilliant lawyers in Kenya, foreign workers in Labrador, the endangered Bluefin tuna, rock star chefs taking a stand against food waste, and an animated young girl who copes with her Mom’s mental illness by losing herself in the imaginary world of books.

Executive Producer for NFB’s Quebec / Atlantic studio, her recent producer credits include:
VIVE LA ROSE 2009 (TIFF and Sundance)
FLAWED 2010 (Hot Docs, Silverdocs, double honours at Palm Springs, EMMY nomination)
HOW DOES IT FEEL 2011 (Golden Sheaf award)
