Jessie Posthumus is a Canadian writer, director, and editor working in both documentary and narrative film.

Since graduating from Ryerson University’s Film Studies program with the award for Best Screenplay in 2017, she has continued to make films that put characters first. In her work you will find a deep understanding of world-building, as well as a keen sense of humour.  Jessie is also a commercial video editor with a specialization in branded documentary content - a job that allows her to practice digital forms of storytelling every day.

When she's not working, she can be found camping, reading, vlogging, and searching for spare change in her mattress.
