Irina Lord is a Romanian-born Film Director, Editor and Producer based in Canada. She holds a BFA in Fine Art from the University of Oxford, and an MFA in Contemporary Arts from Simon Fraser University. Most notably, her work was featured by the CBC, Booooooom TV, the Audain Gallery, Modern Art Oxford, and others, in publications and art institutions in both Canada and Europe.
Through her narrative work, Irina explores women-driven stories with an edge - "subtle, yet unsettling". Her first feature film, "Soft-Spoken Weepy Cult Child", funded by the Canada Council for the Arts, and developed through the VIFF 2019 mentorship program, is set to premiere in 2022.
