IndiePix, Celebrating Independent Film

Leah Meyerhoff

Leah Meyerhoff was born in San Francisco and attended high school in Berkeley, California. She graduated with Honors from Brown University with a Bachelor's degree in Art-Semiotics. She spent the following year studying film at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where she also taught at the undergraduate level and founded an art gallery. Leah is currently pursuing a Master's degree in Film at New York University.

While at NYU, Leah directed TWITCH, a short film portraying a young girl's irrational fear that her mother's disability is contagious. A Slamdance Grand Jury Prize winner and Student Academy Award finalist, TWITCH has screened in over 200 film festivals worldwide, including Cannes, Palm Springs, Chicago International, Woodstock, Clermont-Ferrand, Brooklyn International and Milan International. TWITCH has won over a dozen international awards and was picked up for distribution by IFC, Reelport and Skandinavia TV.

Leah has since completed several music videos. TEAM QUEEN, a gender-bending, fire breathing, post-punk music video for Triple Creme, has won numerous awards and is now airing on LOGO. ETERNAL FLAME, a burlesque music video for Joan As Police Woman, continues to screen at festivals and was recently picked up by MTV Europe.

Leah has received press coverage from The New York Times, The Hollywood Reporter, Film Threat, The Boston Globe, Flavorpill, The San Francisco Chronicle, and numerous other publications. She is also profiled in the docu-drama series Film School, directed by Nanette Burstein (THE KID STAYS IN THE PICTURE) which continues to air on IFC.

When she is not making films, Leah teaches film courses at New York University and the New York Film Academy. For the past few summers, she has taught editing at a film school in Florence. She also lectures at colleges around the country and has been a featured panelist at a number of film festivals. Leah often works as a film festival consultant and recently served on the Slamdance narrative jury.
