Becca Roth has been writing stories and screenplays since before she was old enough to type.
When she was little, she would pace back and forth in her family’s computer room while her mom transcribed Becca’s excited spouting of The Wizard of Oz 2: Dorothy’s Roller-Blading Adventure. (The film has yet to be produced.) Becca made her first short film, Kings and Queens, at the age of seventeen, and has been writing and directing ever since.
She graduated from Kenyon College in 2010, where she studied film, drama, anthropology, and finding four leaf clovers. After spending her first year out of college working for tips and crewing on other people’s projects, she set out to make her first independent film. With her tip money, she made Rain in Summer, a short film that went on to screen at nearly a dozen
film festivals nationwide, picking up several awards along the way.
She has just completed the feature-length documentary, One: A Story of Love
and Equality. She is extremely passionate about this project, and can’t wait to see where it will go. (Hint: It just won "Best Director-Feature Documentary" at the Queens World Film Festival).
Becca lives in Brooklyn with her girlfriend and two mischievous kittens, Oliver and Twist (both female).
