Maribeth Romslo is a director, cinematographer, and producer whose feature film Dragonfly premiered at the Los Angeles Women's International Film Festival, was selected for "Best of the Fest" at the Minneapolis St. Paul International Film Festival, was available on Amazon, and just landed VOD distribution.

In 2015, she produced a feature-length documentary, Our Journey Home, about how home shapes us, with the Emmy-award team at Stillmotion and celebrity narrator singer-songwriter Jewel.

Maribeth and her creative partner Cristina Pippa wrote and produced two narrative projects in 2016: The Last Job , a spec pilot for an episodic story set in the 1970s about a Midwestern lady mob boss, and Amelia, a short film that takes place in 1937 about a girl with polio who hears Amelia Earhart's distress calls on her shortwave radio and springs into action. The Last Job was a finalist for the 2016 Sundance New Voices Lab. She hopes Amelia is the first in a series of narrative films about women who have inspiring encounters with female pioneers, spanning different times and subject matters – telling stories about how when women see themselves in positions of power, they can then imagine themselves in those roles.

A Loyola University Chicago graduate, Maribeth spent her early career as an award-winning professional photographer and magazine editor in New York City before transitioning to film. You can find much of her new work at www.maribethromslo.com.
