Trevor Anderson is an independent filmmaker based in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. His most recent film The Little Deputy premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. His previous films include: The Man That Got Away, which won the prestigious D.A.A.D. Short Film Prize at the 2012 Berlin International Film Festival; The High Level Bridge, which was included in the 2012 Sundance Shorts touring package, and which Roger Ebert proclaimed, “better, minute for minute, than most of the features at your multiplex”; and Rock Pockets, which won the inaugural Lindalee Tracey Award at Hot Docs 2007, presented to “an emerging Canadian filmmaker working with passion, humour, a strong sense of social justice, and a personal point of view.”

In an essay on his influential U.S. blog Short of the Week, Jason Sondhi wrote that "Anderson, with The Little Deputy, continues to prove that he is one of the smartest and most inventive filmmakers in the short form." In 2016, Trevor was named by the Alberta Foundation for the Arts as one of “25 Influential Alberta Artists” from the past 25 years.
