Bruno Lyra Instructor, Film Production

Until mid-2016, Bruno S. Lyra was a corporate lawyer. Having become one of the youngest senior partner in the history of his 60+ year firm, Lyra acquired extensive experience in media-heavy international events (such as the FIFA World Cup and the Olympic Games) and the entertainment industry as a whole (counting among his key clients some of the largest broadcasters, streamers, and content providers in the world). Since making the switch to film, Lyra has devoted his time to both producing (credits include the award-winning feature film THE SOUNDING, which sold to HBO in 17 territories, as well as the ongoing series FIRST PERSON, now in its second season, screened at TIFF and Cannes) and screenwriting (recent highlights include a deal with Blue Ant Media for his TV show IDENTITIES and one of his feature film projects being selected for development financing by Telefilm). A Latinx immigrant to Canada, Lyra also consults for different productions and teaches Copyright/Contracts in Film and Film Financing at the Toronto Film School.
