Producer and filmmaker

Adriana Monti

Adriana Monti is an Italian-Canadian independent producer, feminist filmmaker, and author. She started her career in Italy in the late 1970s by developing a collaborative and experimental style that allowed the women who were the subjects of her research to take an active and creative role in her films. Monti is the founder of the experimental film school Lanboratorio di Cinematografia – Albedo, where she taught and managed while she was finishing Scuola senza fine in 1983. She also taught film history and film production at the Women’s Free University and at the Film and Television School in Milan. Monti moved to Canada in 1996, where she worked for fifteen years as reporter and story producer at OMNI Television Rogers Media, and started her own company A&Z Media Ltd. In 2012, she produced Icework (a Mark Thompson’s Chalmers Award Project), and a series of shorts, and began development on Never too Late to Create in collaboration with a group of seniors at Christie Gardens residence in Toronto. In 2010, her film Three Women, Adapting Life, Adopting Lines was broadcast by OMNI. Her films continue to be presented in festivals and institutions worldwide.
