Brit Kewin is a Toronto-based filmmaker who directs, shoots, and edits documentary and narrative fiction. With her brother, Nick, she comprises one half of a sibling team who are interested in creating mutually concocted realities that veer just south of normality. Their films concern families, couples, and communities on the edge of dark truths and painful open secrets. Brit loves using genre to slide sideways into topics that matter.

Brit comes from a documentary film background with a M.A. in visual anthropology from  Goldsmiths College, University of London. She is a recipient of a Women In The Director’s Chair program scholarship, is a companion member of the Canadian Society of Cinematographers and has had her films screened at a number of festivals.

Oh hey there!

Here are some personal and client projects, completed and on-going projects, and things I like that need a good home. I will be adding to this page periodically.

Welcome Stranger

Welcome Stranger is a naturalistic sci-fi short about an alien adrift on earth. With a gaping hole in his chest that no one seems able to see, he relies on an ill-advised instruction manual about human behaviour to guide his attempts to connect with others.

This short is a meditation on loneliness. The grief of heartbreak knows no narrative and no ending, just glimpses and fragments and trying to put meaning on experience.
