Brendan Prost is a 25-year-old DIY filmmaker and a recent graduate of Simon Fraser University. He is best known as the ambitious and unabashedly personal young auteur behind three feature films, Choch (“one of the intriguing and involving low-budget indies to cross my desk in 2011” – The Independent Critic), Generation Why (Rising Star Award Winner at the Canada International Film Festival - 2010), and most recently, Spaces and Reservations, which screened across Canada in the spring of 2014.
Brendan’s directing credits also include a diverse set of short films on a variety of formats, including most recently an improvised act of self-interrogation entitled Best Friends For Life (Official Selection - Montreal World Film Festival). Currently, as well as distributing Spaces and Reservations and submitting his SFU grad film Getting There to film festivals, Brendan is in development on his new feature film project.
Originally a child actor from Calgary, Brendan relocated to Vancouver four years ago to pursue his education at Simon Fraser University. There, he has continued to pursue his interest in performance-intensive, personal narrative filmmaking while working towards his BFA and collaborating with his peers in a myriad of ways.
Brendan’s films are characterized by their evocative, earnest spirit and particular emphasis on character.
