Seattle, WA, USA
Wynter Rhys is an award winning director, writer, and editor from the Seattle area. Her signature aesthetic and storytelling style represents the controversial and abstract thoughts that push the boundaries of society and common thinking. She wants her films to ignite raw truth and get under an audience's skin. As a director, she begins and instills the story, but she believes the story evolves and resolves itself within the mind of her audience - which is precisely the reason why her films are so psychological. Universally human, undeniably chilling, and beautifully visceral - this is the foundation of every piece she creates. Wynter wrote, edited and directed her first film, Little Red, at 15 years old. Her films have been awarded in many festivals worldwide. Now, at 19, she is in pre production of her first feature film, Subject Eleven, which will be shot in 2018/2019. She is also pursuing her BFA in filmmaking at Savannah College of Art and Design on a full scholarship. Wynter is also a National YoungArts Alumni, winning in Cinematic Arts 2016 and 2017.
