Laramie Dennis is a director and writer committed to telling honest, unexpected stories about complex female characters. Her latest is a micro-budget feature entitled WHERE IN THE HELL, an unlikely road movie set in a not-quite-post-pandemic world, that she's developing with Pipeline Media. LIFE ON sMARS, inspired by a real-life NASA experiment, recently earned her a spot at THROUGH HER LENS: The Tribeca Chanel Women’s Filmmaker Program, along with a development grant from The Tribeca Film Institute. Also in development is GIRL PRETENDING TO READ RILKE, her adaptation of an offbeat coming-of-age novel by her mother, Barbara Riddle. Laramie's shorts have screened at venues including the Vancouver International Film Festival and the Short Film Corner at Cannes, and have been presented/distributed by Boyish, Shorts International, and Sprint. Before moving to Los Angeles, she spent a decade in New York developing and directing plays, most notably at Jim Simpson and Sigourney Weaver's Flea Theater, where she was a resident director, and at "the downtown powerhouse" Soho Rep. She has a BA in English and Theater from Wesleyan University, and an MFA in Film & Television Production from USC.
