Director Biography

Krista Davis is a visual artist and filmmaker based in Yukon, Canada. Her recent work engages with the messiness of human and non-human coexistence in an age of ecological crisis. She aims to make imaginative, even if somewhat impossible propositions to restructure prevailing cultural and political norms, with the hope that it plants seeds towards a larger ideological shift needed for a more sustainable world.

Davis’ experimental work has been presented in galleries and at festivals internationally. She is a collaborator with a number of queer and ecological projects, and co-founded the OUTeast Film Festival in Halifax Nova Scotia. Davis received her BFA at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design and MFA from Arizona State University.
