Hey, I'm Lindsey!

Let's work together! And if in the USA or Australia, submit to the film festival and creative hub I run, Connect Film Festival. 

Here's me:

Here's the festival / filmmaker's job hub and creative hive I founded --

Connect Film Festival, now a "Top 100 Best Reviewed Festival" on Film Freeway!*



I'm an actor and film festival director, of Connect Film Festival, based in the USA and Australia.


I love both sides of the lens, started as a photographer for about a decade, then directed a few shorts, and after training at NIDA in Australia moved to the acting side. I was in 5th Humor Sketch Comedy while a student at Yale, and am always looking for collaborators, particularly in comedy. My specialty is accent work, and I spent 9 years studying Japanese and sang in a Japanese pop band in my misspent youth-- always keen on sharing culture and sound.


I make film, connect filmmakers in festival showcases that celebrate world class work, and encourage a production hub for filmmakers to make better work together. I do creative producing, have managed other artists, and constantly seek acting projects and ways to contribute to filmmaking. 


While Connect Film Festival screenings are selective, our events are inclusive and intended as a filmmaker "hive mind" and pre-production hub connecting filmmakers from all facets of production. Cinematographers, Actors, Soundies, Editors celebrate their festival work as well as the traditional Director-Producer combo. Filmmakers at all stages of development are warmly welcome to attend, contribute, submit. 



What started as a "connect filmmakers" project in an art-pub in Australia has now bloomed into an international film festival on our 5th official event. 

We are IMDb listed, with industry recognition recognized by AFM, IFP, LA Film Festival etc. We give awards and stuff, but more than anything offer a way to connect with filmmakers and industry-- to find your next gig, your creative collaborators, your agent, your deal, your tribe. Filmmakers say:


submit now:


Mention "seed and spark" in your cover letter for special consideration-- the Connect team does all we can to support other organizations that encourage prolific, collaborative and caring filmmaking.


Connect with great films. Connect with great filmmakers. Make better film together. 


Viva la filmmaking fire, y'all!
