Lulu Keating has a diverse and prolific practice in film and video crossing genres of fiction, animation, experimental and documentary. With pan-Canadian connections, from Halifax to Vancouver to Dawson City in the Yukon, Lulu remains a vital force in the creative community of artists working with the moving image. She spent several years in Halifax, contributing actively to the community there in her work with the Linda Joy Media Arts Society and the Atlantic Filmmakers' Co-operative.
Following studies at St. Francis-Xavier University, the Vancouver School of Art and Ryerson University, Lulu taught workshops in Vancouver at the Emily Carr College of Art + Design and Halifax at the Nova Scotia College of Art + Design.
Besides her many short works exploring hand processing and personal narrative, Lulu has directed two feature films. The Midday Sun (1989) was the first Canadian feature shot entirely in Africa (Zimbabwe). Lucille's Ball (2013), was made in Vancouver, created with assistance from the Women in the Director's Chair Feature Film Award. Its success on the festival circuit included Best Canadian Feature Film Award at Toronto's Female Eye Festival and capturing one of Vancouver's Leo Awards (Best Editing).
While continuing to explore the compact and plastic visual language of the short film medium, Lulu is developing a dramatic television series, other feature films and several short documentaries.
