Mae Mann is a director and writer based in Brooklyn, NY.
Growing up queer in a small southern town has shaped me into an artist unafraid of exploring the road less traveled while remaining sensitive to both my audience and subjects’ experiences. I’m fascinated by the daily lives of complicated characters - women on a hard-earned battle of self-discovery, breaking free of what binds them.
In art and life, I strive for honesty and am committed to the craft of storytelling. I’ve written, directed, and edited a dynamic collection of films that have screened internationally and hold numerous accolades including a Gold 1.4 Award, Silver Young Director Award, and two Red Dot Design Awards.
I’m passionate about people and telling their stories with simplicity.
Currently working @ The Mill.
