Laura Seixas

Hi there! I'm Laura, an award-winning film director. I have directed several  projects including Belonging and Dreaming Whilst Black, all of which have been selected to play at major festival, the latest having been selected for over 33 festivals and received over 65 nominations and 36 wins.

In the last few years, I have been developing several projects like my first feature, A Carrinha, an international co-production with Take it Easy (Portugal) and Buriti Filmes (Brazil). I have also been working with a company in the United States, Foreign Nationals, for a second feature entitled, Salomé.

I am currently developing with my mentor Marian Sanchez Carniglia a line of workshops about pitching and creative storytelling that will come out in 2021.
