Filomena Calabrese

Both a storyteller and lover of stories, real and imagined, Filomena is the Literacy Coordinator at the Calgary John Howard Society and an ELL instructor at Bow Valley College. Before returning to her hometown of Calgary in December 2016, she was a Membership Representative with the Toronto International Film Festival and volunteered whenever she could at Toronto film festivals. In Calgary, Filomena is a Board Member of Calgary Cinematheque and continues to volunteer with small and big local film festivals. Even from a distance, she’s thrilled and proud to be a part of JAYU's programming team.
