Rebekah Fieschi
Writer/Producer/Director

Rebekah was born in Corsica, an island off the southern coast of France.  An innate storyteller, even as a small child she made up elaborate stories to tell her family and friends.  Her natural talent for make-believe and her lucid imagination fostered a palpable fantasy world that still serves as an inspiration for her work. Taken with cinema at an early age, it was after seeing Edward Scissorhands at 11 that Rebekah realized she too could make her dreams as vivid and tangible to others as they were to her.  Since then she has put all of her energy toward crafting her own films.  After studying filmmaking in Paris, Rebekah moved to New York in 2010 to continue her studies and begin her filmmaking career.  She has since made nearly a dozen short films and has numerous projects in the works.
