Sasha levinson

Sasha Levinson is a writer and director of films, commercials and branded entertainment. Inspired by the inner life of humans and the life narrative, her work is focused on story, exploring the goodness that connects us all. Sasha spent the formative years of her career shooting music videos with such luminaries as Mary J Blige, 50 Cent, Angelique Kidjo, Cake and The Barnaked Ladies. This electric sensibility still informs her aesthetic today. Her short films have premiered at SXSW and Cleveland International Film Festival. Her commercials and music videos have been nominated for MTV and AICP Awards, and been published in the Communication Arts Annual and SHOTS. Sasha’s first feature film, SYLVIE of THE SUNSHINE STATE premiered at the SLAMDANCE FILM FESTIVAL in 2022. It is the story of second grader Sylvie as she navigates the absurdities and emotional turbulence of her eccentric multigenerational Jewish matriarchy, a dad who lives far away and life gone virtual, as seen through the lens of her filmmaker, single mom. Sasha is in love with both the collaborative film making process and the solitude of writing. The tone of her sets feel like a celebration of filmmaking and this joyful approach is apparent in the material she creates.'
