My name is Justine Olivia McCloskey. I graduated with honours from Toronto Metropolitan University's BFA Film Studies program in 2013, specializing in directing and production design. In 2012, I was awarded the prestigious Norman Jewison Award for Innovation in Filmmaking. I was also nominated for the 2013 Dean's Essay Award for my essay "Grete Suffraunce: Dysentery and The Crusades."
After working as a Photographer and Video Producer at THP Agency, I attended the University of Toronto and received my MA in Art History while TA-ing media and photography courses with both UofT and OCADu. Currently, I work as a Creative at HumanContact Inc. where I produce and direct commercials, radio spots, and internal content for clients across Canada. My first Canada Council grant-supported short film is currently underway and I am looking forward to completing my OAC-funded still-life photo series in fall 2023.
You can typically find me amidst piles of cookbooks, camera in hand! Feel free to say hi!
