Canadian actress Amanda Ives currently resides in Los Angeles after working extensively in Toronto's independent film and theater scene. A graduate of the University of Toronto's joint theater program with Sheridan College, Amanda also studied filmmaking at the New York Film Academy.
She directed the short documentary "True Spirit: The Story of the Holiday Helpers" which delivered an extensive background on a prominent Canadian non-profit organization. She was a featured soloist in the Canadian premiere of the hilarious musical comedy "Jerry Springer: The Opera!" Other theater credits include the musical "Something of Silver" (dir. by Tony-nominated Tony Tanner) and "The Journey of Truth," in which she played Susan B. Anthony.
Her favorite film credits she's worked on include two incredible period short films called Wretched and The Prospector's Curse. In 2016 Amanda co-wrote, co-produced and co-starred in her first feature film, Three Roads, which is currently in the very final stages of post-production.
Amanda is one half of the film production company AmandaSarahFilm with producing partner and fellow actress Sarah Goer. They are very proud of their first feature film, Three Roads, and are excited to direct, write, produce and act in women-centric films that push boundaries and connect with people on a deeply human level.
