Francis Luta - PictureHausFilms Bio Pic and LogoNew content bloc



This month we are delighted to catch up with award-winning producer and filmmaker, Francis Luta, hot off the successful Canada-wide cinematic release of his latest movie ‘Alone Across the Arctic’. This movie is a viewing must for anybody who appreciates the sheer beauty of Canada’s vast wilderness in some of the hardest parts of the country for most of us to visit.


What is one piece of advice you would give to aspiring entrepreneurs?


The universal advice that can be applied to any industry and the one that I always try to abide by even if it’s impossible: Try to know everyone’s role in the project you’re doing.
