Gabrielle Zilkha

Lives in Toronto, ON


Gabrielle Zilkha grew up in a family of funny neurotics from Montreal, Canada – something she believes is at the heart of her severe Trypophobia but also what sparked her love of storytelling.


Gabrielle is an award-winning director and producer with experience in scripted, documentary and interactive content. Her award-winning short comedy Stop Calling

Me Honey Bunny was shortlisted for the Iris Prize - the world’s most prestigious LGBT film

award. Recently she directed the CBC digital series Queer (Self) Portraits and the feature

documentary Doing Jewish: A Story From Ghana for Vision TV. Her work has been reviewed by the Globe and Mail, Indiewire, CBC and The Huffington

Post, the Canadian Jewish News and After Ellen.


For the past three years, Gabrielle works as a Producer and Director of Programming for POV 3rd Street, an organization dedicated to helping youth who face barriers to employment step into the media industry through education, training, mentorship and job placement.
