Director/Producer/Cinematographer, Summer Love

Summer Love gained a reputation early on as Canada’s “it” girl for fresh, edgy pop culture documentaries. From films that explore the underground DJ music scene to the cutting edge of Montreal’s fashionistas, to her latest foray into pop and politics, Love’s films have one thing in common; they aim to engage, enlighten and inspire.

Launched theatrically to critical acclaim during the G-20 Summit in Toronto, Winner of the 2010 Best Documentary at the Raindance Film Festival in the UK, and the 2010 Most Inspiring Film at the Orlando Film Festival, Love’s first feature documentary Sounds Like a Revolution marries her commitment to social justice and passion for music and politics, documenting the rise of a new wave of protest music.

Summer is currently working on a feature length documentary on the controversial life and legacy of the blues/funk legend, Johnny “Guitar” Watson.
