Akash Sherman

Who: Akash Sherman is an award-winning Canadian writer and director with a strong background in visual effects. His most recent feature film Clara  premiered at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival. It won the Jury Award for Best Narrative Feature Film at the Austin Film Festival, and has since found U.S. distribution with Screen Media.

Career Turning Point:A recent turning point in my career began with premiering Clara at TIFF and going on the international festival tour. This allowed me to interact with exciting members of the industry outside of my own country, and resulted in me going to L.A. and having several opportunities open up that a young Indian kid from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada would not usually have.”
