Lulu Keating
Lulu Keating studied theatre and film in Nova Scotia and Ontario, but according to her, her real film education began when she joined the Atlantic Filmmakers Cooperative in Halifax. After making a few short films, Keating received her first Canada Council Grant to make the educational short, City Survival, which screened at the 1983 Atlantic Film Festival. Shortly after, she formed her own production company, Red Snapper Films in Halifax. She later moved to the Yukon in 2000. In late August of 2008 she was badly injured in a car accident while driving to Dawson City to deliver some of her films for the festival in that city. In April of 2010 it was announced that Keating would receive the Women In the Director’s Chair (WIDC) Feature Film Award, which will help her complete her film Based on a True Fantasy.
