About this submission
Based on the true stories of many families, Amazing Grace tells the story of a single mother caring for her adult son with schizophrenia.
Aiden Keltner, a San Diego and Los Angeles based filmmaker, directed his first film when he was 8 and has been making films ever since. Because Aiden’s father is a psychiatrist and he has multiple family members with mental illnesses, the mental health community has always been a part of his life. Because of this, Aiden is dedicated to bringing light to underrepresented stories from this community. Because of his homeschooling background, Aiden was able to work professionally on sets starting at the age of 15 on a feature film. Additionally through high school, Aiden worked and volunteered on sets at graduate film schools such as the American Film Institute, USC, UCLA, and NYFA. From these opportunities, Aiden was able to sit in on lectures at these schools and learn from the students he worked for. This is also where Aiden met his current creative collaborators. Aiden currently works professionally crewing on commercials and feature films while he continues to direct his own films. Aiden has directed multiple award-winning short films which have screened internationally at various festivals as well as being distributed on PBS' website. He is a recipient of the Voices with Impact 2024 Production Grant. Aiden is dedicated to his craft and will continue to tell compelling, powerful stories in the future.
