Lulu Keating


B: in Antigonish, Nova Scoria

Lulu Keating was born in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, and studied at Saint Francis Xavier University. At the Vancouver School of Art, she discovered a love of film. Keating attended the film program at Ryerson in Toronto before embarking on filmmaking at the Atlantic Filmmaker’s Co-op where, according to her, her real film education began. 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. Keating relocated to Dawson City, Yukon in 2003 where she has been producing through her company, Red Snapper Films Limited. 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 helped her complete her film Based on a True Fantasy.
