It's been 5 years since I've been on the radio and this is basically what I've been up to! I've always had a love for film and for those who knew me from the radio you already know we loved storytelling. Film felt like the most natural progression for me so here we are:). I dove right in and almost four years later I have a couple things that hopefully you'll enjoy watching!
Reza Dahya is known for his work as a host and producer of OTA Live on FLOW 93.5FM in Toronto. He transitioned into filmmaking with his first short film, ESHA (2011), and the crowd-funded FIVE DOLLARS (2013), which premiered at the TIFF Kids International Film Festival, screened internationally and aired on CBC’s "Canadian Reflections". A 2014 alumnus of the Canadian Film Centre’s Cineplex Entertainment Film Program Directors’ Lab, Dahya completed his CFC Short Film, CHAMELEON (2015), with writer Chris Cromie and producer Josh Ary and is developing a slate of feature films.
If you want to know more about my time in radio, here's a great look at what seems like a lifetime ago. Shouts to Ty Harper and everyone that was involved with OTA Live!
