“CRSHD Gives The College Sex Comedy A Welcome Female Subversion”

Emily Cohn (she/her) is a millennial New York City-based filmmaker. She first started making films at 10 years old, using Photobooth and iMovie to teach herself how to edit by copying commercials and music videos.

Her work is infused with energy, using colour, cutting and music to bring the characters’ emotions to life. Often, Emily focuses on how characters relate and interact online. In “CRSHD”, Emily’s debut feature, she created physical sets to represent social media and received critical praise for her unique vision. “CRSHD” had its World Premiere at the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival in April and Emily was listed as one of NYTimes’ 9 filmmakers to have on your radar.

As a former dancer, Emily also pays close attention to body language and movement through space, particularly in her music videos. She had a web series featured in the NYTimes and her first short film, Pierced, was funded by the Tribeca Film Institute and won Best Drama at the All American High School Film Festival.

Emily studied Creative Writing at Oberlin College and Fiction Filmmaking at the Prague Film School.
