An energetic, forward-thinking storyteller, Roxanne Marciniak believes in happy endings for powerful women. Raised by an independent working mother, Marciniak writes, produces, and directs films depicting strong female leads in realistic situations, from dysfunctional dating to a home invasion. Her characters navigate life on their own terms, using intuition and intelligence. Fueled by eternal optimism, Marciniak prefers a happy ending. This can play out in many forms from comedic to prevailing justice. She believes the audience should leave the theater feeling complete.
Marciniak’s short film The Three Bobs (ShortsTV, Studio City Film Festival, Golden State Film Festival, Independent Shorts Awards Winner-Best Comedy) explores the trials of dating, with crisp realism and comedy. Single…Still? A web series spinoff of The Three Bobs recently premiered at the Dances With Films Festival 2021. Her short film thriller Non-Emergency (ShortsTV, Hollywood Reel Independent Film Festival, Lady Filmmakers Festival Winner-Best Halloween Teaser Short) follows a woman-turned-action-hero during a break-in.
In 2019, Marciniak founded, directed and produced the first annual Rock the Shorts Film Festival to acknowledge and celebrate independent filmmakers and their passion for short films.
