Hey, I'm Emilie!

New York, New York

I'm a filmmaker -- directing, writing, and producing are my thing. My debut feature QUEEN ANNE'S LACE will be released in 2018. My shorts include MUCK (Best Narrative Short - IndieMemphis; BAMcinemaFest), CROSSING THE RIVER (Best Ensemble Cast - NYC Downtown Short Film Festival; Best Short - NUHO Online Film Festival), OTHER PEOPLE'S HOUSES (2011), and MY ELENA (2010). I'm currently developing several features including PUNCH CITY (IFP's No Borders 2017); BUCKLE MY SOUL (semifinalist TAA, Creative Capital; participant Indie Film Clinic); and FLORESCENT MESA. I was Director of Development at Milk & Honey Films and Creative Director at Filmmakers Alliance. I love thrifting, vegetarian food, and being a mom.

My Films

Surrounded by racism, one boy grapples with empathy and influence when a biracial girl moves in next door.
