March Mercanti is a filmmaker living in Toronto, Canada specializing in writing, directing, producing and editing.
His scripted fictional work has elements of surrealism while remaining inherently human. At the end of this year March will be directing a short narrative film called Clean Ice with the support of the Ontario Arts Council. Also, a short film he produced and assistant directed for Adam King, My Brother's Rifle, will be premiering in the winter.
Day to day March works on several documentary based projects - he finds stories and stories seem to find him. Recently, March has been working with CBC Arts documenting various artist processes and stories.
