Actress turned Director.


As an award-winning actress from the age of eighteen Nada Litz has been worked with notable directors like Reginald Harkema (MONKEY WARFARE), Daniel Cockurn (YOU ARE HERE), Nicolas Winding Refn (FEAR X), Jeremy Podeswa (THE FIVE SENSES), Brad Peyton (EVELYN THE CUTEST EVIL DEAD GIRL), Andrea Dorfman (LOVE THAT BOY) and Fernando Meiralles (BLINDNESS).

She attended York University for Cinema Studies and in 2010 she became a Director-in-Residence at Norman Jewison’s Canadian Film Center.  There she made her directorial debut film HOW TO RID YOUR LOVER OF A NEGATIVE EMOTION CAUSED BY YOU! a short which played over a dozen film festivals internationally, including TIFF and out-of-competition at Cannes. The short also won best short at Austin’s Fantastic Fest and was included on the coveted McSweeny’s Wholphin Number #15 beside works of Sean Durkin (MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE and Jay Duplass (JEFF WHO LIVES AT HOME).

HOW TO RID YOUR LOVER OF A NEGATIVE EMOTION CAUSED BY YOU

In 2012 Litz made HOTEL CONGRESS, a feature that she wrote, co-directed, produced and starred in.  It was made as part of Ingrid Veninger’s 1K Wave.  In 2013 the Toronto Film Review said of that film,

“As a study of male and female relations it belongs up there with the films Ingmar Bergman, Woody Allen, and Eric Rohmer.”

In late summer 2013 she starred opposite Rossif Sutherland, Stephen McHattie and James Le Gros in Jeff Moneo’s feature film BIG MUDDY due out in 2015.

Her latest feature THE PEOPLE GARDEN was recently awarded the Audience Prize at the 2013 TIFF Studio’s inaugural Screenwriting Lab. Producers Dan Bekerman and Coral Aiken took this film across Canada, shooting half of the film in Northern Ontario and the other half in Sooke, Vancouver Island helmed by Line Producer Daniel Domachowski.
