Sophie Jarvis is a Vancouver-born writer and director whose first job in film was reading fan mail for THE L WORD. Later, she studied at Simon Fraser University where she made her short film THE WORST DAY EVER, which premiered at TIFF in 2012. Since then, Sophie has gone on to direct many short films, including MEDICAL DRAMA (Clermont Ferrand 2019) and ZEB'S SPIDER, a stop motion animation co-directed with Alicia Eisen for the National Film Board. Her feature debut UNTIL BRANCHES BEND premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2022 and won the award for "Best BC Film" at VIFF the same year. Sophie's background as a production designer deeply informs her practice as a director. Sophie currently resides on unceded xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) and səl̓ilwətaɁɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) territories (aka Vancouver).
