Ann Bernier has been working in the film and television business since 1988 when she began working at Telefilm Canada's Atlantic office. For 12 years, she spent much time nurturing upcoming filmmakers and producers, overseeing much of the television and feature film development projects and later the new media fund. Anne was instrumental in establishing a new program for emerging filmmakers. One of the first projects to come out of the program was the critically acclaimed Parsley Days by Andrea Dorfman.
Anne left the public sector and joined the Atlantic Film Festival in 2000 and 2001 to produce the international co-production conference Strategic Partners (Canada and the UK in 2000 and Canada, Spain and Latin America in 2001). She has been an independent producer since 1999. Ann was Director of Operations and Development at imX Communications Inc. which produced such award winning coproduction films as Margaret's Museum starring Helena Bonham Carter, Love and Death on Long Island starring John Hurt and Jason Priestly and directed by Richard Kwietnioski, New Waterford Girl and The River King, and the documentary Damage Done: The Drug War Odyssey by Connie Littlefield. She was the Executive Producer on Rohan Fernando's feature film Snow. Ann is currently working with Donna Davies on two television series for Zoomer I Prophesy 3 and Supernatural Investigators 2 and with John Walker on his latest feature documentary Arctic Defenders.
