A perpetual asker of big questions, Cailleah has appeared on either side of the camera, seeking to shed a little light and humour on the human experience. Her interest in understanding the creative mind has led her to live and work in Canada, the US, Europe and Japan. Her home is currently in Toronto, where she works as a documentary director, cameraperson and editor. Her work is distributed by Vtape, Canada's leading artist-run, not-for-profit distributor of video art. In fall 2018, she will join York University's Film Production MFA cohort.
As a Jane-of-all-Trades, Cailleah works to bridge cultural, social and technological gaps through art and film. Her debut documentary, She Got Game (2015), is a personal adventure tale about the search for empowered women who are changing the social climate of video game culture. The film took home Best Feature and Best of Fest at Fan Expo Canada and was awarded Best Documentary at the Imaginarium Festival in Louisville, Kentucky.
When she’s not shooting, you can find her dead-lifting at the gym, jamming with Beatsync or curled up with her Japanese comic books.
