Hart Snider is a filmmaker who tells personal, funny, and ultimately inspirational stories about his childhood and teenage years in Edmonton, Alberta.
His first animated short, The Basketball Game (2011), won Best Animated Film at the ViewFinders International Film Festival and was nominated for four Leo Awards. The short aired nationally on the CBC and was formally recognized by the Alberta government for being “innovative and thought-provoking” and “informing audiences on how hate and discrimination impact children.” Shop Class (2018) is Hart’s second animated short, which is currently playing at film festivals. Other recent projects include editing the feature documentaries I Am Heath Ledger, Botero, That Higher Level, and Illusions of Control.
Hart has an MA in Media Studies from Concordia University in Montreal. He lives in Vancouver and can usually be found either in an edit suite or at the park with his wife Galit, daughter Leora, and dog Wolfie.
