Erin Galey is an American film director & producer whose work explores the nuances of empathy, identity, and social justice in the sci-fi, thriller, and drama genres. Her work features dynamic female leads with rich emotional worlds, in stories of woman vs. self or woman vs. society, sometimes seen as outsiders or anti-heroes. Her stories are often set in lush natural environments. A graduate of NYU Tisch School of the Arts Grad Filmmaking program, Erin studied under directors Ramon Menendez, Oliver Stone, and Shekhar Kapur, as well as cinematographer Bobby Bukowski. Her thesis film “Sahasi Chori (Brave Girl)” premiered at SXSW, screened at 50+ festivals worldwide (including the Director’s Guild of America), and garnered critical acclaim and awards like the Women In Film Directing Award, the Carl Lerner Award for a Film With Social Significance, and Best of Fest at Palm Springs. In 2013 she received a directing shadow position at HBO, studying under Oscar & Emmy-nominated director Lesli Linka-Glatter, and writer Angela Robinson. Later that year she founded In The Flicker, Inc. – a commercial, music video, & narrative production company in Portland, OR.
