Anthony Azzopardi Biography

Malta Born Anthony Azzopardi graduated from York University in 1976, receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with honors. He majored in theater & film direction. Thereafter, he formed his own independent production company, Theatre Impressions, where Azzopardi produced & directed productions wherever he could. After deciding that his real interest was film, he signed on to associate-produce Surfacing, a film adaptation of the Margaret Atwood novel.  But it wasn’t until 3 films later, in 1984, that Azzopardi’s career took off when he produced a documentary style biography about Canadian native, symphony conductor, John Kim Bell.

Besides finally achieving critical success, Azzopardi now found himself on the film map. He started work on Making Opera*, which, after winning the Gold Hugo at the Chicago International Film Festival and a Gemini Award for best cinematography, became a trilogy with Making Ballet*, and Making Theater*, which also earned various accolades such as the Festival International du Film d’Art’s Grand Prix Special du Jury and the Dance Film Association’s Bronze Award. Azzopardi’s other film credits include Strindberg & His Women* and John Kim Bell.
