Eva Michon is an award-winning international film director with a gift for exceptional cinematic storytelling and natural comedic timing.
Born in Johannesburg, Eva grew up in Toronto, where she studied film at the prestigious Ryerson University and this is where she cut her teeth making numerous music videos before expanding into the commercial and narrative filmmaking world.
Featured in the respected 1.4 Free the Bitch list of ‘10 female directors to watch globally’ curator Lyndy Stout observes ‘Eva Michon is hot on nuanced narratives with great simple ideas that make you smile. Never girly, she’s particularly wonderful at creating that cruisey mood of being at one with the world – as, for instance, in her film Lollipop for fashion brand Rita Liefhebber or her latest music video for Toronto-based Harrison, Right Hook.’
Eva is also the co-founder and editor in chief of Bad Day, a creative cutting edge biannual arts and culture magazine. She recently debuted her short film “Small Fry” at Toronto International Film Festival and is expanding it to a feature in 2017.
