Hey, I'm Rebekah!

Denver, Colorado

I'm a writer/director from a tiny island in the south of France, making peculiar fantasy and gothic horror films in the US through my company Horromance Productions . 


My new film, Sylphvania Grove, successfully crowdfunded on Seed&Spark and is currently in film festivals where it has already been nominated for fourteen awards including Best Fantasy Short and Best Director. My previous, Mauvaises Têtes, is an award-winning reinvention of classic Hollywood horror films such as Frankenstein which was well received in film festivals around the world and is now distributed through Seed&Spark, Amazon Prime and Vimeo on Demand. My focus is to bring more entertaining, yet layered, character driven gothic horror and fantasy films to the screen while giving a voice to underrepresented characters.
