Amanda directs narrative dramas and comedies. Her second feature, ASKING FOR IT, stars Stephanie Hsu (BE MORE CHILL, MARVELOUS MRS. MAISEL) and Janeane Garofalo (WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER) and will enter the 2020 film festival circuit. Her first feature, PINSKY, premiered at the Moscow International Film Festival, won “Best Narrative Feature” at the Santa Fe Independent Film Festival and was distributed by Breaking Glass Pictures in 2019. It is currently streaming on Amazon.
Her influences include Leonard Cohen, for his concise but expansive lyricism, Tamara Jenkins’ THE SAVAGES, and more than anything else, Nathan Lane’s performance in THE BIRDCAGE.
Amanda lives in Brooklyn, was born in South Florida and raised in Boston. She’s a member of the Brooklyn Film Collective, NYWIFT and Film Fatales NY.www.amandalundquist.com
