Documentaries That Inform And Inspire



Roaring River Films is dedicated to the production and distribution of documentaries that inform and

inspire with a focus on capturing the experience and perspectives of queer people of African descent

across the African Diaspora.



Roaring River Films was founded by Phillip Pike. Born in Kingston, Jamaica, Phillip migrated to

Canada in the early 70's with his family. As a graduate of McGill University's Faculty of Law,

Phillip's journey of personal and professional discovery has taken him from a career creating

change as a community activist and human rights lawyer to a career creating change through

storytelling as an independent documentary filmmaker. Phillip is a graduate of the Documentary

Filmmaking Institute (School of Creative Arts & Animation, Seneca College, Toronto). He also

received training in video production at Trinity Square Video in Toronto and at the Bay Area

Video Coalition in San Francisco.
