A Fallen Angel

Emma Westenberg

director

Blessed with the gift to visually transform any setting, storyteller artist and filmmaker Emma Westenberg crafts cinematic creations imbued with a happy-go-lucky and whimsical aesthetic.

Graduated from the renowned Rietveld Academy and the Cooper Union School of Art in NYC, the director received a special distinction ‘cum laude’ for her short film ‘The Still Life of Estelle’ – which she wrote, directed, produced and art directed. Soon after she picked up an award at the Milano Fashion Film Festival for her short film ‘Blue and You’. Her first steps that would really define Emma as a filmmaker were a diverse set of projects, ranging from commercial work for the likes of ASOS, Dutch Design Week and Vogue to short films and music videos. The latest of which being the viral sensation PYNK, and her contribution to Janelle Monae’s ’emotion picture’ Dirty Computer.

Emma is currently working on her first feature film, and is successfully juggling projects in fashion, music and fiction.
