A Bit About Rebeka

Rebeka Herron is a Mixed Raced Latina filmmaker. An alumna of Capilano University’s Motion Picture Program, Women in the Director’s Chair and the Producers’ Lab at the Canadian Film Centre. She is a member of the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television, ACTRA Toronto and the Canadian Media Producers Association (CMPA). Rebeka started her career as a producer’s assistant at Brightlight Pictures in Vancouver learning how to develop, package and budget films for Hollywood (The Company You Keep, 50/50, Gunless). She then moved into the writing and post departments on documentary & lifestyle working with Lark Productions, Omni Entertainment and Good Humor. In 2015, she produced 360 VR productions for the Canucks, VR Wonders and BC Lions with Perspective Films. Rebeka worked for 5 years at Taqqut Productions where she was the Senior Line Producer and Production Supervisor on several children’s series and animated projects including the TIFF winner, CSA winner and Oscar shortlist ANGAKUSAJAUJUQ: The Shaman’s Apprentice. Throughout her career she has taken pieces from each company, project, and budget range to give her the knowledge to open her own company (or several) in Sault Ste Marie, ON. Her recent work includes directing Kiss My Incoming Abs Season 1 & 2 (NOVUS TV), writing segments on Anaana's Tent Season 3 (APTN) and Tundra Friends Season 1 (APTN), directing segments for Kuluk Season 1 (NITV), and producing 5 features during the Covid-19 pandemic, including directing her debut feature film Armchair Traveller (Beacon TV).
