Born in Toronto, Canada, Bex Bradshaw is an award winning queer director now residing in Hollywood, CA. Her films are dark, quirky and character driven, and usually centered around colorful and unconventional outcasts. Kind of like how she sees herself. Vivid and eye-catching set design helps achieve a timelessness to the worlds her stories live in. Her themes are always cheeky and subversive, touching on self and secret identities, sexuality and sometimes even perversion. If you were to ask Bex, she would argue the nineties were the best decade for cinema. She spent the greater part of her twenties playing in punk and rock n roll bands, so it’s no surprise she finds most of her inspiration from the albums that soundtrack her life, and the oddballs who fill it.
Her 2019 film "Playmates" was a selection at the LA Comedy Festival, Washington DC’s LGBTQ Reel Affirmations Film Festival, and the Austin Revolution Film Festival where it picked up awards for Best Comedy and Best Actor. Bex's 2020 short film "This Charming Man" was an official selection at HBO's New York Latino Film Festival. In early 2021, she released "360 Seconds", which Indie Shorts Mag called "a hallmark of incredible filmmaking", Whohaha.com stated "This short is fantastically acted, shot, directed, designed and will leave you wanting more." In the summer of 2021 she released "Nineteen Ninety", a queer love story dedicated to her LGBTQIA2S+ family.
Bex recently finished post production on her latest dark comedy, "A Bad Romance", and is excited to premiere the film during the 2023 festival season.
