A thirteenth-generation American, Elizabeth Orne studied Art History in undergrad and went on to work in major art galleries in New York, London and Los Angeles before attending the NYU Graduate Film Program. SHOOT named her a “new director” to watch.
Her film Crazy Glue was an Official Selection at the 2011 Telluride Film Festival and was shortlisted for the 2011 Student Academy Award. Her film The Girl on the Fridge was partially funded by The Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
Elizabeth describes her directing as emotionally true yet delightfully entertaining, stating that: “Our job as storytellers is not to just communicate the dry bones of a story, but to engage an audience, and leave the story resonating within them.”
