Sandi Somers, Spring Street Films

Our Best Filmmaker of the year, Sandi Somers, is a Canadian independent filmmaker who has been living in Alberta for over two decades. With most of her work based in Canada and Europe, she also has quite an impressive resume. Not only is she an award-winning filmmaker, but Sandi also works as an educator and theatre artist sharing her passion with others. Talent like this is hard to compete with.


Sandi is a writer, director and producer at Spring Street Films – need we say more? She received the Best Feature Director Award for the film "Ice Blue" in 2017 as well as the Legacy Award, the Spirit of Helen Award and Dave Kelly Live Force of Nature Award. This woman is a mixture of energy, creativity and oomph all wrapped up into one dynamic fireball.
