About-Galán behind the films

Eliot speaks to reporters on eviction day at the Balmoral Hotel, DTES Vancouver

It all started with a B&W film camera in high school, where I learned to develop and print my own photography, and documented the lives of my peers. Photography shifted to moving images in 1998 when I began volunteering at a local TV station in Boulder, Colorado, becoming acquainted with professional broadcast equipment. The following year I made my first documentary from the famous “Battle in Seattle,” sharing an intimate and immersive experience of the protests that rocked the world.

I continued making videos for the next five years, went to film school in Montréal, then finally moved to Vancouver in 2005, where I hit the ground running, editing my first narrative feature film. Since then, I have worked as a writer, director, producer, cinematographer, editor, and colourist, won numerous awards, including a Leo, and was nominated for a Canadian Screen Award. My projects have screened at more festivals and networks than I can keep track of. I feel truly blessed to work in this business, and I feel like I am just getting started.
