Amber Sealey is an award-winning filmmaker and performer. Her most recent film, NO LIGHT AND NO LAND ANYWHERE, won a Special Jury Award at the LA Film Festival and IndieWire said the film could “further cement Sealey’s reputation as one of the most promising directors of female-driven stories working the U.S. today.” EP’d by Miranda July, it won the Indie Vision Breakthrough Feature Film Award at TCFF, and will be theatrically released in 2017. Her second feature, HOW TO CHEAT, won the Best Performance Award at the LA Film Festival, and won both Best Narrative Film Award and Best Acting at BendFilm. Critics called it “amazing… laugh-out-loud hilarious” and “one of the most relevant and eloquent portraits of modern marriage to date.” Critics said of her first film, A PLUS D, “Fact and fiction are obliterated… edgy, anguished, funny… The acting is astonishing… I thought of Cassavetes, Winterbottom.” Amber was selected for Film Independent’s Directing Lab and Fast Track program, as well as WIF's Mentorship program. Amber extensively shadowed director Jamie Babbit on the Netflix series “Girlboss” for seven weeks, and shadowed Jill Soloway on “Transparent.” Schooling includes: The University of California, Santa Cruz, The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and The Central School of Speech and Drama. As an actor, she has appeared in numerous films and television shows. She is a highly experienced audio book and voice over artist, and teaches a weekly acting class in Los Angeles.
