Hey, I'm Shoshana!
Washington, District of Columbia
I'm an independent filmmaker based in Washington, D.C. I made my first short film The Goblin Baby (a supernatural thriller about the first year of motherhood) in 2014, and am shooting my second film, Hide and Seek (an alternate reality story about an indie rock musician turned stay-at-home-dad) in April 2017. I'm a big fan of all things #womeninfilm.
I'm also a screenwriter, educator and mom of three. You can learn more about my work here.
