Emily Elizabeth Thomas

is a Texas-raised, Chicago-trained, New York-based writer/director. A classically trained writer and screenwriter, Emily's directing style is rooted in story, character and design — where each frame is a carefully constructed world. Her work both investigates and illuminates the female experience, and blurs the lines between the real, and magic. A true movie buff, Emily considers herself a lifelong student of film.

She enjoys wearing her many cowgirl hats, being on set for as long as possible, and being in many places at once.

She resides in Brooklyn NY, but maintains a working and creative practice in the Great State of Texas.
