Bruce Macdonald

Bruce is passionate about making a difference and telling meaningful stories that evoke and stimulate change in the way society looks at those in need. His work as a director bringing awareness to Human Trafficking has garnished him being nominated for Humanitarian awards and winning Best Human Rights film at Cannes World Film Festival

Climate change is of great interest to Bruce as a director , his work in Dubai is very focussed on the future of the planet.

Using media to evoke emotive responses to this critical situation has opened the doors to doing short films for numerous role-players within the UAE.
