Rebecca is a multi-disciplinary artist from NY, based in London, eager to give a TED Talk on Zabar's bagels vs Brick Lane beigels. They're particularly passionate about genre-blending and are committed to the creation of queer, multicultural and sex-positive new work. They originally moved to England to earn their BA (Hons) in Acting from The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts, followed by their MA in Screenwriting from The London Film School.
Their debut short "Collector's Item" has played at seven international festivals including the BIFA Qualifying Manchester Film Festival, Sunscreen Film Festival and Chelsea Film Festival. Their second short "Buffalo & Wolfy” recently played at Revry TV's Queer X Festival, Filmland, Madness Film Festival, and won Best Original Concept at LGBTQ Unbordered International Film Festival. Rebecca’s third short, “Puck”, is currently being submitted to festivals for the next circuit.
Next up, Rebecca aims to produce her short "Muddy Ripening" which was recently a Top 5 Finalist for the Shore Script Short Film Fund, placing it on The Red List and top 2% of discoverable projects on Coverfly. Additionally, she's developing a feature film, a pilot, and two other short scripts. Specialties include kinky tales, chaotic character-driven ensembles, and some good old Jewish zingers.
Rebecca is keen on all forms of collaboration and also enjoys script editing, art assisting, and script supervising. When they aren't writing or working on set, they're practicing shibari, drawing, and stuffing their face with babka.
