Director Biography - Amber Handy

Currently I reside in Oklahoma after a year long adventure travelling around, first the United States to find these stories. And then crossing the border to explore Mexico with my partner, camera, 50mm lens, and an openness to follow my heart and passions for storytelling.

I graduated from the University of Oklahoma, Class of 2017 with a duo degree; Bachelor's of Arts in Film & Media Studies and a Bachelor's of Arts in Journalism: Creative Media Productions with a minor in Anthropology.

I attended Cinemadamare, an international travelling film festival and school in Italy of 2016. I had the privilege to present three of my short films at Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival in France of 2017.
