Filmmaker, producer, writer and artist Rose Casella was born in Canada into an Italian family, propelling her into a world of diversity, art, film, travel, culture and social justice.
She received a Fine Arts Degree from both Emily Carr Institute of Art & Design (Vancouver, Canada) and L’Accademia di Belle Arte (Venice, Italy).
Her art background led her into Vancouver’s film industry where she worked for many years on documentaries, feature films and commercials. Her decision to switch from fine arts to film was based on a need to reach a larger and more diverse audience.
Rose has lived and worked in Europe for the past 15 years, working on various film projects from documentaries, short films, advertorials to online videos.
A passion for storytelling combined with a desire to bring to light social issues such as women’s rights and equality in the world has always been a driving force in her life.
