Rebekah Fieschi is an award-winning writer/director from a tiny island in the south of France. Her new film, Sylphvania Grove, successfully crowdfunded on Seed&Spark and will premiere in film festivals this summer where it has already been nominated for twelve awards including Best Fantasy Short and Best Director. Her previous film, Mauvaises Têtes, is an award-winning reinvention of classic Hollywood horror films such as Frankenstein which was well received in film festivals around the world and is now distributed through Seed&Spark and Vimeo On Demand.
Her focus is to bring more entertaining, yet layered, character driven gothic horror and fantasy films to the screen while giving a voice to underrepresented characters. Her career as a storyteller began as a small child, making up elaborate tales to tell her family and friends. This natural talent for make-believe and keen visual imagination, had by age eleven, led her to decide on a directing career. After studying filmmaking in Paris, Rebekah moved to New York in 2010. Her first feature film, Beast, is currently in development.
Adam Harvanek wrote his first screenplay over 20 years ago and directed his first short in 1999. He put off film school until 2007 though he eventually became an instructor. He has worked in nearly every facet of the filmmaking process including screenwriter, producer, director, editor and production designer. He has collaborated with Rebekah Fieschi on many of her films, including Two Sisters, Mauvaises Têtes and Sylphvania Grove.
