Finalist Judge / Short Form

Jody Sugrue

Director of the Digital Studio at Toronto International Film Festival

Hello. My loves include design, storytelling, code and their convergence on any platform. I most recently worked at National Geographic and frog design. Prior to that I helped lead Showtime Network’s digital rebrand and their entry into the multi-platform market with Showtime Anytime. I founded a creative agency called morel with two other partners.

I currently live in Toronto with my husband, my cat George and my coffee maker. I joined the team at TIFF as their new Director of Digital where I helped launch their new Digital Studio in January.

I don't tweet as much as I should. On a typical day you can find me shooting random things on my phone and drinking way too much coffee.

Nice to meet you.
