Brittani Smith

September 12th, 2009 by davidkim


As a filmmaker, Brittani Smith typically functions within a sexuality niche, although recent short scripts oscillate between random & dark comedy. She occasionally acts (e.g. Fallout, an Iowa City television series) and made her directorial debut this summer with an experimental narrative film entitled redBLUE, currently in post-production. Brittani interns at Women in Film Chicago, maintains a position as senator in DePaul University’s Digital Cinema Collaborative (DCC), and fulfills a writing fellowship. Brittani expects to graduate from DePaul University in June of 2010 and plans to continue screenwriting within the city of Chicago indefinitely.
