Ella Vance is an Australian-American filmmaker, writer and interactive media-maker living and working in Denver, CO. With a background in art film and interactive museum media, Ella’s creative practice is rooted in the use of film and media as an oneiric conduit for self discovery. Her 12 short films take on a variety of structures and themes that explore the inner worlds of each subject, whether real or fictional. Ella uses a variety of mediums to enhance the stories she tells, including: digital video, 16mm, Super8, web-based interactive experiences and audiovisual installations. Ella graduated with a BFA in Filmmaking from Minneapolis College of Art and Design and has had her film work featured in Minneapolis St. Paul International Film Festival and Side Stories 2019. Ella is currently in progress on an interactive installation and experimental film hybrid project inspired by Rilke's “Repository of Unlived Things”; an analog and digital compendium of lost moments and dreams.
