Anna Remus is a Minnesota-born and Los Angeles-based director and writer. She grew up in the wild, frigid landscapes of International Falls, America’s coldest city. After graduating from Harvard University, Anna worked on nationally-broadcast programs such as Downton Abbey; interviewed award-winning talent, including Benedict Cumberbatch; and managed visual storytelling projects for brands like Cigna, Ernst & Young, and Sports Illustrated.
Anna was a Runner-Up in the 2020 ScriptED Writing Challenge at Sundance Film Festival, and awarded a place in the 2020 WIF Mentorship Program.
As a director, she roots for the underdog. She wants to tell stories of the unheard and rarely seen through the gateway of genre. As a kid in a small town, movies were her escape. Giving others the opportunity to have a 90-minute adventure is her life’s purpose.
