ABOUT ELLIOT FRANCES FLYNN
Elliot Frances Flynn is an up and coming actress. This year, she made her feature film debut in “Shoplifters of the World”, made a ghostly appearance in Netflix’s horror “Things Heard & Seen”, and appeared in HBO’s hit miniseries “Mare of Easttown”. On screen and in her work as a writer, Elliot explores themes of coming of age, sexuality and womanhood with honesty and enthusiasm. She is currently a finalist in the ATX Festival Pitch Competition.
ABOUT ELIZABETH MEHLING
Elizabeth Mehling is a filmmaker, animator, and editor currently living in New York State. She graduated with a BFA in Film from SUNY Purchase after writing and directing several short films. Her work primarily focuses on feminism, queer women, adolescence, and mental illness, which are often explored in a variety of formats, from animation and documentary, to experimental and poetic shorts. She is a big proponent of using 8mm film, stop motion, and analog aesthetics in combination with modern film technologies to bring stories into a collage-like space of anachronism and timelessness. “Memories Of Rain” had the distinction of winning the award for best senior film at SUNY Purchase, and has been a finalist and semi-finalist at several festivals both domestic and international.
