Jenn Shadd is an award-winning writer, filmmaker, and film scholar based in Los Angeles. She graduated from the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television with a degree in Narrative Production and holds a master’s degree from Arizona State University’s Film & Media Studies program. She was awarded the Frank Glicksman Memorial Scholarship and the Ion Pictures Scholarship for her accomplishments in screenwriting and directing, and her UCLA thesis film, Krypsóna, won multiple awards, including Best Writing from the Monkey Bread Tree Film Festival. Her latest film, La Dame de Monte-Carlo, in which she adapted and directed, screened with The Art House Film Festival in December, and her soon-to-be-released book of short stories will be workshopped alongside award-winning writers and journalists in Paris, France this Spring. Jenn's creative perspective is inherently shaped by her upbringing. Raised in Yuma, Arizona to a Greek, single mother, her artistic focuses are rooted in shifting notions of identity, the pivotal events of young adulthood, notions of femininity, and the everyday moments that reveal our deepest humanity. Jenn has worked as a film industry writer for Backstage Magazine, a Publicity Intern for Anthology Film Archives, and an Executive Assistant at film/television visualization studio, THE THIRD FLOOR, as well as in various on set roles. She is a Faculty Associate for ASU, teaching courses for the department of Film and English, and currently writing multiple screenplays and shorts, slated to be in production in 2022.
