Millefiore Clarkes, Director
THE SONG AND THE SORROW

Clarkes applies her skills as a DP and an editor to her own films and also works with others in the Atlantic Canadian film community.

Billie Mintz, Director/Writer/Producer
Billie’s life is a series of wild tales that are mostly true. An award-winning documentary filmmaker, he is a certified Reiki healer, an ordained minister of deliverance, and trained in shamanism by an old Incan medicine man from Peru. Serving two seasons as National Geographic’s correspondent and director for the show Explorer, featured on John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight, and the first civilian to screen his film and debrief the FBI on an issue they knew little about, Billie is a long-time advocate for social justice and believes in the power of story to raise consciousness and inspire policy change.
