Seth Smith is an award winning filmmaker and artist from Halifax, Nova Scotia. His work depicts dark, yet hopeful themes, pairing the classic aesthetics of formalist filmmaking with modern storytelling. He began in film by producing music videos for his band DOG DAY. In 2012 he completed his first feature, LOWLIFE. The film premiered at Fantasia, then screened at the Atlantic Film Festival where it was boldly named “the most original feature debut in East Coast cinematic history.” It went on to win the Audience Award for Best Feature at the festival, and received a DIY theatrical release in 25 cities, including every province and territory in Canada. Apart from working on his own films, Smith can be found on the sets of local television productions (Haven, Trailer Park Boys), and frequently serves as programmer for various film festivals.
