Ari A. Cohen

Born in Morocco, Ari A. Cohen of Rotating Planet Productions is a multiple award-winning filmmaker who has created acclaimed documentaries and television series for over 15 years.  Ari has produced socially engaging documentaries about minorities, the oppressed and all those who are marginalized. From Too Colourful for the League, a film about Haitian hockey players in Montreal, to Being Osama, which opens a window onto the lives of six Montrealers named Osama in the post-9/11 atmosphere, to Inuit communities in Nuvavik and Nunavut, or communities of the middle Eastern diaspora who identify with food in Falafelism. Most recently, Ari travelled across Canada for The Family Farm, an in-depth look at small-scale farming and the food production process that modern day consumers have become estranged from. Ari has always been dedicated to diversity, and the importance of this notion in our lives and for the future of our planet. With a Graduate Degree from Concordia University in Arts Administration, Ari was a Director at the Saidye Bronfman Center for the Arts, a leading arts center working in the performing and visual arts where he co-created and managed the Saidye Bronfman Youth Institute from 1995 to 1998. Ari is currently the vice-president and treasurer of Doc Québec and is also an avid musician, martial artist and actor.
