Haley Elizabeth Anderson is a filmmaker, writer, and visual artist from Houston, Texas. She recently graduated from New York University's Graduate Film Program as a Dean’s Fellow. With roots across the Gulf Coast and a background in playwriting and poetry, her work often explores coming-of-age experiences, race, and the ever growing class divide. Before moving to New York, Haley worked in casting where she helped street cast several feature length projects. Her experiences street casting a Terrance Malick project in Austin, Texas led her to further develop her love for collaborating with nonprofessional actors, a process that drives her aesthetic: a hybrid of narrative film and experimental documentary.
