Founded as a film collective in 2006 by Montreal based directors Dan Popa and Robby Reis, Natali Film is best known for their captivating films which merge documentary subject matter with poetic imagery. Both filmmakers draw inspiration from their visual art background as a means to continually explore a contemporary cinematic language. Their leading ambition is to pursue writing, directing and producing revealing auteur films, which explore thought-provoking characters through a path of self-discovery.
Their recent productions have been screened at TIFF, the MoMA, the Lincoln Center for the Arts, Le Festival du Nouveau Cinéma, Les Rendez-vous du Cinéma Québécois, Les Rendez-vous du documentaire international de Montréal, the Philadelphia Independent Film Fest and the Brooklyn Film Fest, among many others.
