Rosvita “Rosie” Dransfeld is an internationally renowned producer and director of feature documentaries, although her full credit list would include more than 300 short films and docs. Her films are powerful encounters of the human condition and invite audiences to take another look at reality, balancing on a thin line between laughter and tears. In 2010, her documentary Broke won the prestigious Donald Brittain Award for Best Social/Political Documentary. It was announced in January of 2016 that she would be honoured with a Focus On retrospective at the Hot Docs festival in Toronto.

All of these titles are documentaries, beginning with her credits as a Director:
