Rachel (Anishinaabekwe) is from Sandy Bay First Nation in southern Manitoba. She graduated in 2010 from Assiniboine Community College with a diploma in media production, winning two awards for her recognized talent.

Since graduation, Rachel has focused her creative energy on learning directing for film and television content. Her work is influenced by her unique perspective as a First Nations woman and aims to make space for creators with a diverse vision.

Recently, Rachel held a spot as a finalist in Women in the Director’s Chair, Short Works Lab (2018), and NSI IndigiDocs (2020). She also saw success as her first film, Red River Roots, debuted at both LA Skins Fest (Hollywood), and Gimli Film Festival (2018).

Her latest documentary debuted in December 2019, Songs in the Key of Cree, a behind-the-scenes film guided by Cree playwright Tomson Highway, will highlight Rachel’s expertise as a director.

Dedicated to the success of Indigenous Peoples, Rachel works at the Manitoba First Nations Education Resource Centre Inc. (MFNERC), creating original content for cultural and educational purposes.



I’ve been in the corporate video world for a decade now and I’m interested in doing more creative work as a director. My main work has been in documentaries and I’ve been moving toward Directing scripted works. I’ve been writing short scripts and learning grant writing for a feature I would like to write.

I have a day job and would like to move out of that to do more creative works.
