Moira Simpson

Moira Simpson is an award-winning freelance director, cinematographer and editor of documentaries. Her career spans more than 30 years and encompasses many National Film Board, independent and television docs. Her work in film, video and new media is informed by a belief that film can be a powerful impetus for social justice. Simpson is drawn to projects featuring women who are change-makers. She has taught filmmaking at Emily Carr, SFU and UBC and has given filmmaking and digital storytelling workshops across Canada and the Arctic, as well as in Nairobi, Kenya. Although still passionately committed to making docs, Mo has recently been enjoying working on short dance and art-aktion performance pieces.
