While obtaining her Bachelor of Media Arts from Emily Carr University (2009), Brianne realized her proclivity in exploring perspective as a human condition, with specific regard to taboo. She is simultaneously interested in tapping into the framework of fragmented memory and loss of innocence. The ideas may mash up either in a moment of buried humiliation, or in post apocalyptic worlds where zombie caribou’s roam.
Nord-Stewart gained international recognition on the festival circuit with her multi-award winning short film, Trolls (2009), which received an Honorable Mention at the Academy Accredited™ Clermont Ferrand International Short Film Festival. Then with the multiple award winning short, The Provider (2011). Brianne was awarded the Legacy Filmworks Award (2012), and the Shaw Media Fearless Female Director Award (2013).
Brianne hands out uncomfortably honest questions and opinions in her everyday life, and has been known to host a living room dance party or two. Otherwise, she can be found winning limbo competitions on Croatian islands, hitchhiking in places she shouldn’t, and turning her car accident experiences into mockumentary black comedies.
