bio

My name is Patrick Andrew Bonsant and I am an award-winning documentary filmmaker from Portland, Maine. 

In 1993, I earned a BA in Communication from the University of Southern Maine.  After graduating from college, I completed a 7-week video/film course at the Maine Media Workshops in Rockport, Maine. 

In 2007 I became the Director of Saco River Community Media, a non-profit media center serving six municipalities in western Maine. 

My work at the media center has been wide ranging, creatively rewarding, and overwhelmingly productive.  I am enormously proud to assist hundreds of people on a wide array of community-focused productions ranging from public service announcements to full-length documentaries. 

I’m particularly interested in historic preservation and environmental protection.  One of my proudest achievements was a 9-part information series about the Allagash Wilderness Waterway in Northwestern Maine. 

I'm passionate about my work. My documentary work has been shown statewide on the Maine Public Broadcasting Network's community film series. I am an active member of the Maine Film Association and my most recent documentary is entitled Island of Eagles: The Swan Island Story

My highest priority is your production needs. I have over 20 years of experience and I am eager and excited to discuss your project concepts and ideas with you in detail.  

Thank you for visiting my website - it would be a pleasure to work with you.
