Patricia Rozema


B: August 20, 1958 in Kingston, Ontario

Born in Kingston, Ontario, Patricia Rozema was raised in southern Ontario by Dutch Calvinist parents and educated in Canada and the U.S. at Christian schools. While completing her B.A. in Philosophy and English Literature at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Rozema decided that she would become a journalist. She worked at television news stations in the U.S., and as an associate producer at CBC’s The Journal in Toronto, but she soon realized her powerful attraction to the world of fiction and, in 1985, enrolled in a filmmaking course at Ryerson Polytechnical Institute. Patricia Rozema is pictured on location during the making of Into the Forest. Her film Mouthpiece was selected as the Opening Film for the Special Presentations section of the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival.
