I am Andrea Odezynska.
Andrea Odezynska has created narrative, documentary, and experimental films. Variety has praised her work’s, “beautiful, iconic images.” Regardless of genre, Andrea’s movies have celebrated ordinary women doing something hard and succeeding.
In 2018-2019, Andrea won a U.S. Fulbright Scholar grant to research and film her new environmental feature documentary, “Return Sasyk To The Sea”, in Ukraine. Past grants include: NEA The National Endowment for the Arts, NYSCA The New York State Council on the Arts, and the Robert Wise Foundation. Festivals include The Hamptons Film Festival, Rotterdam, Kansas City Kansas (sidebar films about motherhood), Through Women’s Eyes International Film Festival in Sarasota, Florida, The Princeton Environmental Film Festival, The Rural Route Film Festival, Craft In Focus Festival in Amsterdam, Holland, and many more.
Notable museum screenings include, her film, “Felt, Feelings and Dreams” being shown at The Rubin Museum of Art in New York City, The Museum of the Moving Image in Queens, The Ukrainian Museum in New York’s East Village, and The Anthology Film Archives in Manhattan. This film is now part of the permanent collection of the Musee du Feutre (Mouzon, France). The Rural Route Film Festival paired “Felt, Feelings and Dreams” with the feature documentary “Mosou Sisters.” Both films toured across the Southern U.S. as part of the Micro Cinema Women in Film Tour (2014).
In 2016, Andrea wrote a feature-length narrative comedy, “Greenpoint”. The 2016 Sundance International Screenwriters Lab selected “Greenpoint” to move ahead to its second round, the semi-finals.
Andrea holds an MFA in Directing from AFI, The American Film Institute Conservatory, Hollywood, CA. She holds a BA in Theater from Bennington College, Bennington, VT.
