ABOUT THE FILMMAKER
Elaine Del Valle is a Bilingual, Urban-Latina, Storyteller and Director. A New York Native, Elaine penned her autobiographical, coming-of-age story, “Brownsville Bred” which landed off Broadway and to critical acclaim–The New York Times hailed it as “From Girlhood Trials to Onstage Triumph”. Expanding from stage to screen, Elaine’s films have garnered several Best Short Film, Best Actor and Best Director Awards. In March 2019, the New Times named Elaine as one of “5 Filmmakers to Watch”. Her film, Me 3.769 has been picked up by HBO and will begin airing this fall. Del Valle was one of nine directors chosen to partake in the Sundance Institute Narrative Film Lab. Her latest directorial work includes commercials and branded content for major national brands, both in English and in Spanish. Elaine is currently in pre-production for her next and most ambitious short film, “Princess Cut”-a suspenseful and murderous, dark comedy with the theme of classism.
