With her extensive experience as an actor (85 credits to her name) and producer (AFTERPARTY, Whistler Film Festival & COOKING WITH LOVE, Hallmark Channel), Ali’s creative evolution to directing is a natural one.

Alongside her producing partner, Ali has multiple projects in active development and plans to continue directing and producing her own projects. Ali splits her time between Vancouver, Toronto & Los Angeles. You can find her at @aliliebert on instagram & twitter.
