    CAROLINE GUO, director of "Firecracker"

     

    Like any good Chinese-American daughter, Caroline Guo promised her parents she'd be a doctor or lawyer... only to become a diehard film nerd. Finalist for the 2021 NALIP & Netflix Women of Color Short Film Incubator and 2020 Women in Film & The Black List Feature Residency with FIRECRACKER, she wrote, directed and produced the award-winning short film “The Test” in Beijing, China. A graduate of Northwestern University, Caroline has published in academic journals and is featured in Criterion Collection’s new release of Johnnie To’s THROW DOWN. Hailing from Atlanta but having lived in Chicago, Paris, London and Beijing, Caroline is now based in Los Angeles and working at MACRO. As a writer and filmmaker, she’s most interested in telling personal stories, especially of Asian and Asian-American women, to shed light on larger social issues.

    Eunice Levis is a first-generation Dominican-American, born and raised in The Bronx, New York.

She recently wrote and directed InVade, a sci-fi short film, which made the second round of the 2020 Sundance Episodic Lab with its pilot script. Her urban gothic horror feature script Keep also made the second round consideration for the 2021 Sundance Feature Development program. Eunice's latest work, a folklore horror micro short titled Fell Ends was an extraordinary selection at NYX’s 13 minutes of horror film festival and streamed on Shudder. Her upcoming film, an urban fantasy titled Ro and the Stardust, is part of the 2021 NALIP Latino Lens Women of Color Short Film Incubator, sponsored by Netflix. Eunice is represented by 3 Arts Entertainment.


     

    ANGELITA MENDOZA, director of "The Blue Drum"
