“One of 10 Filmmakers to Watch”

Lily Baldwin is a queer artist, filmmaker, and actor based in NYC, Berlin, and LA. Baldwin combines her deep love of dance and film to craft visceral stories with dreamscapes and stylized documentary. Focusing on hybrid forms, she blurs supernatural, action and thriller genres. Recent experiences living with disability give her a unique inside-out lens; she bridges disabled and able-bodied perspectives.

Her works have been screened at all major festivals including Sundance, SXSW, Berlinale and the Venice Biennale, and have been exhibited around the world at galleries and museums. Her shorts are featured on The Criterion Channel, Netflix, Amazon, Filmmaker Magazine, NOWNESS and Vimeo Staff Pick.

She choreographed the music video ‘Sutphin Boulevard’ by Blood Orange / Dev Hynes and the opening event at Times Square with Arto Lindsay for ‘Performa 09’. As a dancer, Baldwin performed on the world tour of David Byrne and Brian Eno’s album EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS WILL HAPPEN TODAY, with the Metropolitan Opera Ballet.

Lily co-created and performed in ‘TERRAIN: A Docu-Dream’. This expanded cinema installation brings together dance, documentary, 360-degree immersive video, virtual interactivity, and spatial design. Baldwin also co-directed ‘THROUGH YOU’, an award-winning VR installation in which The New York Times noted “Movement and gesture take possession of the viewer in a way that has never been replicated.”

Independent Magazine names her as one of “10 Filmmakers to Watch”, Short of the Week compares her work to David Lynch, and The New York Times says her “work has a visceral power similar to Cronenberg’s.”

Lily is the creator and host of the Audible podcast STORIES OF THE STALKED, a genre-bending true-crime series based on her personal experience being stalked that merges memoir with journalism and immersive soundscape. Additionally, based on her recent experience living in and out of the disability world and insights related to stillness and pain, Baldwin was named a Sundance Institute Interdisciplinary Program Grantee (supported by the MacArthur Foundation) and is on Creative Capital’s 2022 shortlist for her forthcoming documentary feature, CHRONICLE OF HIP. She is the founder of STOP STALKING US, a nonprofit that unites people impacted by the dangerous, often invisible, crime of stalking.
