About Amelia

Amelia is a Barnard College alumna with a BA in Film Studies and English. She initially became interested in filmmaking after completing a six week film summer intensive in high school, but is a lifelong film enthusiast. After writing and directing her first short, she went on to assist a producer on a feature film that premiered at LAFF. Through film studies, the historical canon of film has become an important aspect of her writing and direction. She is inspired by creative auteurs ranging from the dark surrealism of David Lynch to the bravery and truth of Laura Poitras’ documentary work.
