Annie Bradford is a graduate of the Hartt School, holding a BFA in Creative Communications. She was a 2012 Fulbright Awards Finalist to the Philippines, 2012/13 Sundance Screenwriter's Lab finalist, and 2012/13 Sundance/Sloan Commissioning Grant finalist. In 2013, she was awarded a Gold Level screenwriting award from the California Film Awards. In 2015, she created the traveling pop-up cinema series, Pop Up Anthology, with fellow filmmaker Katherine Clark, which focuses on showcasing local filmmakers. In 2016, her short form episodic series, Stepsisters, was selected as a finalist for the Sundance/Youtube New Voices Lab. She offered her screenwriting skills to the Atlanta Film Festival Screenwriting Competition, where she was a judge for their annual contest. Currently, she's finishing post-production on her third short film (first in a foreign language), Vivir!, set in Texas during the Sheep Wars, which was selected in the top 50 out of 900 scripts during the Screencraft 2017 Spring Competition cycle. She works on commercials for local businesses in Austin and acts as producer, production designer, and location manager for music videos and other projects. Annie is also developing a feature, Strangers in A Familiar Land, about the transformative power of friendship in the life of two strangers in modern-day Texas: a Hispanic teenager struggling to survive after her parents are deported and her neighbor who copes with an Asperger's diagnosis. Faced with unimaginable change and no one to lean on, this unlikely pair forge a powerful bond through their shared love of music. Her films have been featured in film festivals nationwide including the Sedona International Film Festival, Woodstock, and Brooklyn Shorts among others. Bradford travels the country for her work, but calls Texas home.
