About the Director

Elizabeth Glynn has a varied background in both education, and the entertainment industry. She knew by her sophomore year in high school she wanted to be a teacher. She earned a degree in from SUNY Cortland in Secondary English Education and started her teaching career at A.C.O.R.N. Community High School in Brooklyn, New York. From there, she made an unconventional decision to move to Los Angeles and pursue another avenue: entertainment.

Elizabeth has worked as a script consultant, set designer, social media marketer, and production manager among other positions. While working for Chromatic Studios, during the course of a long-term contract with the NFL, they earned an Emmy Award for a project called ‘The JFK Experience.’ She produced a pop-up Sundance Film Festival studio to host media, events, navigate distribution deals and conduct live interviews. During this period, she also served as founding humanities consultant and curriculum writer for Ivy Bound Academy in Sherman Oaks, always keeping one foot grounded in the field of education.

Elizabeth went on to study Creative Writing with a focus in Social Justice at Antioch University, Los Angeles. She believes that studying literature and the art of writing makes for a stronger filmmaker. She also knows that she learns perpetually from the creative perspectives of her students. As the Director of the Cinematic Arts Academy, her two passions have finally converged: teaching and filmmaking.
