Darcy Turenne is an award-winning filmmaker and director from Vancouver, Canada.
While completing an MA in Intercultural Communications at Royal Roads University, Darcy purchased a video camera and quickly found her passion for storytelling and visual arts. Her first film, The Eighth Parallel, which doubled as her master’s thesis, has been screened at many film festivals around the world and has received a multitude of awards.
Since then, Darcy has written and directed short films, commercials, and music videos for clients ranging from Coca Cola to Patagonia to Jive Records. Her first feature film — an environmental snowboard documentary featuring David Suzuki called "The Little Things" — won a host of awards including the Best Environmental Film at the Vancouver International Mountain Film Fest, the prestigious “Cold Smoke Award”, and was picked up for the Banff World Tour.
Her filming has brought her to Mongolia, India, Bolivia, Indonesia, Rwanda, The Republic of Georgia, Austria, Italy, Nicaragua, Kenya, Cambodia, Turkey, and Qatar and many other exotic locals — both near and far. Known internationally from her past career as a professional mountain biker, she has been featured in hundreds of publications worldwide, including Rolling Stone and Men’s Journal.
