About Keith Lock

Born in Toronto, Keith Lock holds an M.F.A. degree in film from York University. He worked as Claude Jutra's assistant as well as Michael Snow's cinematographer on a number of works. His student film, Flights of Frenzy, won the Best Super 8 Award at the UNESCO 10th Muse International, Amsterdam, 1969. Credited by Cinemaya as one of the first Chinese Canadian Filmmakers, he was a founding member and first chair of the Toronto Filmmaker's Co-op, which later morphed into LIFT.

Lock has presented three films at the Toronto International Film Festival including: the experimental film, Everything Everywhere Again Alive, (1975), which was presented in TIFF's Retrospective of Canadian Cinema in 1984, and the dramatic feature, Small Pleasures (1993). His half-hour film, A Brighter Moon, received a Gemini Award Nomination for Best Short Drama in 1987. Keith was the first recipient of the Chinese Canadian National Council's Media Applause Award in 1998. His television documentary, The Road Chosen: The Lem Wong Story, received the NFB Innoversity Conference Award, 2002 and his short film, The Dreaming House (2005), received the Best GTA Filmmaker Award at the Toronto Reel Asian International Film Festival. Keith's short, Magical Coincidence, was the winner of the "So You Think You Can Pitch" competition at the Toronto Reel Asian International Film Festival, 2011.
