Beatrice Scharf-Pierzchala

Montreal-based filmmaker & photographer working primarily in cinematography, and sound design.


Since graduating from the Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema in 2017, Bea has produced work for artists such as Ouri, No Joy, Yes Mccan and Patrick Watson, and has had collaborative work featured in TIFF's Wavelengths programming. Her focus as a storyteller and image-maker has been to create playful and inclusive work with a strong emphasis on visual experimentation and the realm of dreams. Drawn to intimate human experiences, she creates always with the intention of sharing little, secret worlds while exploring themes of love, magic and the surreal qualities of everyday life.
