Sophie Jarvis

Director / Production Designer


In 2012, her short film The Worst Day Ever was an official selection at the Toronto International Film Festival. During this festival, she was featured on the Telefilm Not Short on Talent comedy panel. The Worst Day Ever won the Achievement in Direction award at the EnRoute Film Festival in 2013. Since then, Sophie has directed five more short films that have consistently received festival and arts council support. Sophie was invited to participate in the 2013 Berlinale Talents program: a lab that runs during the Berlin International Film Festival. Sophie has been featured in Discorder Magazine, Women In The Director's Chair, The MUFF Society and CTV to name a few.

Jarvis' focus is on high concept storytelling, strengthened by evocative imagery and her trademark dark humour. Jarvis' background as an art director informs and strengthens the visual language of her work. She is an excellent creative problem-solver, and revels in the collaborative spirit of filmmaking.
