Bruno Sanseverino Lyra

Faculty Member
Born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Bruno only began working in film in recent years. Indeed, until mid-2016, he was a corporate tax lawyer, having become the youngest senior partner in the history of his 60+year firm. Since making the switch to film, Bruno has devoted his time to both producing — credits include the award-winning feature The Sounding as well as the ongoing series First Person, now in its second season, having played at TIFF and Cannes — and screenwriting — he secured a deal with Blue Ant Media for his TV show Identities and one of his feature film projects was recently selected for development financing by Telefilm.
