Rhonda Buckley makes short and feature-length films with a feminist point of view

Rhonda’s short film Surrounded by Water, based on legendary singer Joan Morrissey, starring Rachel Wilson, Kate Corbett, and Brian Marler, was shortlisted for the Yorkton Film Festival Awards. The film screened at FIN, SJIWFF, Toronto Short Film Festival, and Female Eye Film Festival. Marie Sharpe was nominated for the CAFTCAD award for best Costume Design.

Rhonda is the writer of the feature films: Betwixt and Between, Another Beautiful Day (produced by Wreckhouse Productions, Telefilm Canada) and Our Joan (Harold Greenberg). Rhonda is also the producer of Come Home Year written by Mary Walsh.

Buckley’s award-winning short documentary Terranova Matadora, on Newfoundland bullfighter Carolyn Hayward, screened at Hot Docs 2016 and was funded by BravoFact Canada. Avon Ladies… Rural Style on hearty Newfoundland women, who became top sellers of Avon makeup in the 60’s, screened nationally and aired on CBC in 2017. Buckley’s next documentary, Freedom 95, asks the oldest generation in human history a hard fraught question: Will you be eating cat food or caviar out of cans when you retire?

Selected to the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) as a producer and (TIFF) Producer’s Talent Lab with films by writer/director Sherry White, including the Genie nominated feature film Crackie, Rhonda continues to be inspired by Sherry’s work.

Additional documentaries include: Vocation (CBC, 2014), The Real Matriarch (CBC, 2009), and James Andersen; 50 Years of Taking Pictures (CBC, APTN, 2008). Memorial University of Newfoundland commissioned Buckley to produce Labrador Roadshow, which was purchased for the Department of Education and is apart of the provincial school curriculum.
