Colbert was born in Canada in 1958. Her interest in film peaked when she became involved with various LGBT groups. Colbert and her partner of 27 years, Dominique Cardona, worked together on many award winning films, including THANK GOD I’M A LESBIAN and 2007’s FINN’S GIRL. The focus of Colbert’s work is uplifting stories about present-day struggles for the LGBT community.
Most recently Cardona and Colbert have moved into fiction storytelling. With their award winning MARGARITA, made in 2012, Colbert and Cardona explore political and social issues by telling the story of a young, immigrant nanny working for a family in Canada. (8/14)
