Bruce McDonald – Director

Bruce McDonaldOne of Canada’s pre-eminent cult filmmakers, Bruce McDonald is infamous for his comment that he’d buy “a big chunk of hash” with the money he won at the Toronto International Film Festival for his debut feature Roadkill. Anyone who’s seen one of his films knows he wasn’t joking.

Roadkill was followed by the other two films in his Road Trilogy, Hard Core Logo and Highway 61. In between executive producing and directing the television series Twitch City and directing shows like Queer as Folk, Degrassi: The Next Generation, and Less Than Kind, McDonald also directed the films Dance Me Outside, Picture Claire, Claire’s Hat, The Love Crime of Gillian Guess, The Tracey Fragments, Pontypool, This Movie Is Broken, Trigger, Hard Core Logo II, and the feature documentary Music From the Big House.
