Briar March
Born December 10, 1980, Briar March is a documentary filmmaker and Fulbright scholar. Fascinated by polarizing and colourful subject matter, and angered by environmental and human rights issues, her films are diverse, but grounded in a passionate desire to communicate. There Once was an Island: Te Henua e Nnoho, Briarís current project, is an award-winning feature documentary on climate change. Partly funded by PBS, the film follows three Pacific islanders in Papua New Guinea as they consider leaving their homeland and culture forever.

This film is screening widely in festivals and won the jury Grand Prix in January 2010 at the FIFO festival in Tahiti amongst others. In her previous TV-hour documentary, Allie Eagle and Me, Briar appears on-screen questioning veteran artist Allie Eagle on her astonishing journey from lesbian separatism to celibate Christianity.

The film has been broadcast in New Zealand and screened at a number of festivals worldwide. In addition to her own filmmaking, Briar has worked closely with award-winning filmmaker Annie Goldson. She has directed music videos, magazine shows, and commercials and has a production company with Lyn Collie, On the Level Productions. Briar is currently completing an MFA at Stanford University in California.
