BIOGRAPHY

Ryan J Noth is a multi-platform filmmaker, editor, and producer. His recent short film collaboration with partner Tess Girard, The Road To Webequie, premiered at TIFF and was nominated for a Canadian Screen Award for best short documentary. Beyond The Horizon premiered at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival, and A Tomb With A View also premiered at the Toronto and Vancouver International Film Festivals. His filmmaking career includes premieres at SXSW (Jandek, 2006) and Rotterdam (Gros Morne, 2009), and the improvised feature fiction film No Heart Feelings (2010, Buenos Aires premiere). NHF was also released theatrically in Canada through KinoSmith, and acquired by Super Channel and SpaFax. Rick Groen of the Globe and Mail called the talky portrait of small-town-downtown Toronto a 'quiet triumph.'

Ryan's documentary editing work parallels his filmmaking career, and includes the upcoming feature NFB documentary As The Crow Flies, by Tess Girard, as well as director Hugh Gibson's The Stairs, which won the Toronto Film Critics' prize as best Canadian feature film in 2016. Additional feature work includes A Place Called Los Pereyra (2009, IDFA), and A Simple Rhythm (2011, Hot Docs, VIFF; dir. Tess Girard).

Partnered with Tess Girard under their company Fifth Town Films, Ryan and Tess co-directed and produced a 2016 Minute on Kenojuak Ashevak, and also produced and edited two Minutes on the War of 1812, featuring minority characters Richard Pierpoint and the Mohawk warrious at the battle of Queenston Heights.

Ryan is also the co-creator and co-producer of The National Parks Project, a multi-platform celebration of Parks Canada's centennial, released on and around May 19, 2011. The NPP brought together 52 of Canada's most unique artists, and was awarded a Gemini, Genie, and numerous interactive awards. The project collected everything online through the award-winning memento nationalparksproject.ca, for which Ryan edited over 120mins of video. Additional producer/editor credits with his company FilmCAN include Northwords (2012), a literary adventure above the treeline, featuring host Shelagh Rogers and 5 noted Canadian writers, including Alissa York and Joseph Boyden. Celebrated Canadian publisher House of Anansi made the collection of stories from this trip their first e-book release, and a cross-platform website links the digital print and video releases.
