Life's A Twitch! Celebrating 15 years.


Tina Hahn,


Tina Hahn is the founder of Symmetree Media, a unique producer of programming that incorporates nature and spirituality with a multi-cultural perspective. Recent projects include: Life's a Twitch, a half-hour documentary celebrating difference through a profile of Duncan McKinlay, and Passionate Involvement, a one-hour documentary produced in association with ASpace Gallery to document CAB2000, capturing the passion of the community arts process through a diverse range of communities and artists.

Symmetree has also worked in partnership with a number of organizations. In 1999, we produced Made in Canada in association with Pangaea New Media for Kodak Canada, a straight to the web video documentation of a breast-cancer fundraiser that launched Bryan Adams' book of the same name. Over the last year we have provided post-production assistance to:

  • Focus Productions who produces videos for the Ontario Secondary School Teacher's Federation, Worker's Health and Safety Centre, among others.
  • Occasional Outburst Video Associates who have just completed a series of bicycle safety training videos aimed at commercial vehicle drivers.
  • Scadding Court Community Centre who has produced two video about cervical cancer for Mandarin speaking women, and is developing other community arts videos as well.
  • Sierra Leone Canada Watch who return to Sierra Leone every year and produce an annual video report.


Tina Hahn has worked for the National Film Board of Canada and for independent filmmakers such as Christa Singer, Judy Jackson and Geeta Sondhi. She has also worked as a software designer for Interactive Image Technologies.

Before being awarded the Documentary Calling Card, she was chosen for the OFDC Hot Docs Market Mentorship program in 2000.
