Elizabeth Wood

Elizabeth Wood was honored as one of Variety’s 10 Directors to Watch 2016. She wrote and directed WHITE GIRL, which premiered at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival and was a New York Times Critics’ Pick. Hailed as “electrifying” by the LA Times, the film was purchased out of Sundance by Netflix, and enjoyed a theatrical release through distributor FilmRise. Wood has also written a graphic novel for Chanel and Conde Nast called, “Stealing Time”, and created the concept and production bible for a 10-part narrative series for SAINT LAURENT called “FULL MOON.”

She holds an MFA from Columbia University’s Film program, where she was awarded a screenwriting fellowship. Before that Elizabeth studied writing, sex, drugs and fine arts at the New School (Eugene Lang & Parsons). After college she taught documentary film in New Orleans at schools that had lost their arts programs after Hurricane Katrina. With her mid-dle school students at the Dryades YMCA she made the feature documentary WADE IN THE WATER, CHILDREN from their footage documenting life post- flood. Wood is currently developing several fiction projects.
