Anika Tokarchuk is a Canadian independent film-maker now living in Wales. With a long standing love for cinema and exploring boundaries of creative expression, after graduating in both film and photography at the San Francisco Art Institute and the Banff Center in Canada, her passions led her to embark on many journeys of discovery, exploring multi-faceted interests crossing cultural and social boundaries.

Focused on themes of social, spiritual and creative fusion, Tokarchuk’s career has been involved in intra-cultural film and media projects for over 30 years. Experience includes experimental media and film in New York, intensive involvement in joint media programs with indigenous North American spiritual leaders, environmental issue projects, and more recently programs focusing on Tibetan Buddhist worldview.
