About

My name is Lewis and I’m a filmmaker based in Vancouver. My documentaries have screened at film festivals such as TIFF, Hot Docs, and Slamdance.

I recently directed a short documentary with Benjamin Taft for The New York Times Op-Docs called Holding On to the Farm. Before that I made a short called Say Something Intelligent, which was a Vimeo Staff Pick. I also recently co-edited a documentary about the TV show Freaks and Geeks, which premiered at Tribeca and aired on A&E.

My feature-length directorial debut, The Sandwich Nazi, had its World Premiere at SXSW where it was nominated for the Documentary Grand Jury Prize.

Most of my films are on Vimeo. If you’d like an email when I post a new film, please sign up for my newsletter.

Here is a photo of me having a bad time at a music festival:
