Anita Abbasi is a Montreal-born, Toronto-living filmmaker, writer of confessional non-fiction and disher of snappy comebacks. She graduated in 2008 with a BA in Creative Writing and Art History, but took a hands-on approach to filmmaking on the side. A lover of cinema since childhood, Anita has a cerebral relationship with film, complicated by her unconditional love of Sylvester Stallone movies. She has studied directing under Deepa Mehta and worked extensively in the Toronto film scene, once with a very cordial Bruce MacDonald! Presently, she earns a living in advertising, but has partnered with Martin Baena to form a small production company through which they are producing their own films.
The Talent Scout is currently in post-production.
