Ali Liebert won the Canadian Screen award for Best Actress in a Featured Supporting Role in a Dramatic Series for her portrayal of Betty McRae in Reelz/Global TV’s original hit series, “Bomb Girls” and won a Leo Award for the same character. In 2013, the Whistler Film Festival, Elle Canada and Variety named her Rising Star of the Festival. Variety also featured her as the “International Star You Should Know” in their July issue. In 2014, The Hollywood Reporter named Liebert as one of the “Next Generation’s 15 Hottest Canadian Talents under 35.”
Liebert’s film career has taken her to festivals across the world, most recently to South Korea for the Busan International Film Festival with Connor Gaston’s crisis-of-faith drama, The Devout. Liebert took home the 2016 Leo Award for Best Lead Actress in a Motion Picture for her role of a mother coming to terms with her young daughter’s imminent passing. Liebert’s other feature credits include Sook-Yin Lee’s Year of the Carnivore, Ben Ratner’s Down River, and Foxfire, based on the Joyce Carol Oates novel. Foxfire was written and directed by Palme d'Or winning French filmmaker Laurent Cantet for Paris-based Memento Films International.
In 2011, Liebert had two films premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival: Mike Clattenburg’s Afghan Luke and Carl Bessal’s Sisters and Brothers. She was also extremely honored to work alongside Academy Award® Nominee Michael Clark Duncan and Emmy® Award Nominee Loretta Devine in the Robert Townsend dramatic feature In the Hive. In 2017, Liebert was thrilled to be a part of Stephen Chbosky’s Wonder, starring Julia Roberts and Jacob Trembley.
Liebert’s television credits include: “Bomb Girls” (Global), “Mech-X4” (DisneyXD), “Lost Girl” (Syfy), “Ten Days in the Valley” (ABC), “iZombie” (The CW), “Legends of Tomorrow” (The CW), and “Harper's Island,” “Strange Empire” and “Intelligence” (CBC).
With her extensive experience as an actor, which includes 85 credits to her name, and two executive producer credits for Afterparty (Whistler Film Festival) and “Cooking with Love” (Hallmark Channel), Liebert’s creative evolution to directing is a natural one. In fact, she completed principal photography on her first movie, Amish Abduction in December 2018. She currently has multiple projects in active development and plans to continue directing and producing.
Liebert splits her time between Vancouver, Toronto and Los Angeles. She can be found at @aliliebert on Instagram and Twitter.
