Filmmaker, Jessica Edwards.
Raised on a hobby farm by musician parents, Jessica Edwards’ imagination for storytelling was inspired at a young age.
After a decade growing a career on the marketing/production side of media and advertising, Jessica made the natural transition to write and direct commercials and branded content. She launched this next phase of her career with a short film, HARD BOILED EGGS, and a fashion film for an online magazine. She quickly established herself with visually rich stories told using unique angles of narrative.
Jessica’s first feature film, STAY AWHILE, is a personal story chronicling her parents’ brush with fame as they climbed the worldwide music charts in the 1960s/70s as Canada’s first supergroup, The Bells. The film premiered at the Whistler International Film Festival and was an opening weekend selection for the Hot Docs International Film Festival, receiving glowing reviews at both. It was subsequently picked up by Netflix in Canada and iTunes, Amazon, and DirectTV in the U.S.
