Marta Borowski is a Canadian filmmaker who emigrated from Warsaw, Poland to Toronto, Canada just after the collapse of communism. For Marta, humble beginnings inspired dreams and fantasies from an early age. Her past, along with a passion for travel and photography, has allowed her to witness the world from a different perspective, which has had a strong influence on her writing and filmmaking. She won the Kodak Canada award for her photograph ‘Empty Repetition’ while attending film school.
Marta started her film career as a script supervisor, she has since worked on over 250 episodes of television as well as over a dozen features and commercials. Select credits include Hannibal (NBC), Alphas (Syfy), Special Correspondents with Ricky Gervais & Eric Bana (Netflix), and Star Trek: Discovery (CBS).
As a director, Marta has worked on Family Channel’s sitcom Really Me and a handful independent projects, including her short film Jacob’s Arrow which premiered at the Phoenix Film Festival. Marta recently completed a short, Resolve, which premiered at the Blood in the Snow Film Festival and has since been accepted to festivals in Canada, the US and the UK. It was nominated for two Golden Sheaf Awards: Short Film (Fiction) and Director (Fiction), and was a Semi-Finalist at Flickers’ Rhode Island and Dumbo Film Festival in New York. Marta is currently in development on a couple exciting projects, including Resolve for television and a feature she is co-writing, Sullivan Street.
