“A Day in the Life” with Vancouver-based filmmaker lori lozinski

lori lozinski is a dear friend, collaborator, and inspiring filmmaker. She’s focused her entire career on telling socially conscious, character-driven stories with female creative talent.

Her award-winning producing work spans genres and styles including the Berlinale and TIFF film The Body Remembers When the World Broke Open to the 6000sq ft installation Transmissions. lori’s storytelling talent crosses features, documentaries and television series bringing her unique creativity and incredible talent to a wide range of projects.

As she’s transitioned her career to writing and directing, lori’s style and storytelling vision has come into even sharper focus. The short documentary The Pilgrimage for CBC Digital demonstrates her own filmmaking voice and her latest film A Motorcycle Saved My Life merges lori’s personal story with her visual storytelling to share an emotional tribute to family, isolation, and grief.

Her work embodies the Julia Cameron (The Artist’s Way) philosophy of “My creativity heals myself and others” while also championing so many other artists who have the privilege to work with her.
