Blessed with the gift to visually transform any setting, storyteller artist and filmmaker Emma Westenberg crafts cinematic creations imbued with a happy-go-lucky and whimsical aesthetic. Graduated from the renowned Rietveld Academy and the Cooper Union School of Art in NYC, the director received a special distinction ‘cum laude’ for her short film THE STILL LIFE ESTELLE– which she wrote, directed, produced and art directed. Her first steps that would define Emma as a filmmaker was a diverse set of projects, ranging from commercial work for the likes of ASOS, Dutch Design Week and Vogue to music videos (most recent for Janelle Monae) and short films. Emma is currently working on her first feature film, titled STRANGER'S ARMS, and is successfully juggling projects in fashion, music and fiction. She recently picked up an award at the Milano Fashion Film Festival for her short film BLUE AND YOU.
