Director/Producer | Graduate of the David Lynch MA in Film

About Me

Jennifer Kachler    At nine years old, I wrote, directed and starred in my first screenplay during a family gathering at my grandparents’ house. The entire cast consisted of my sisters and cousins. Year after year, I put together stories that turned into family-run plays. Several productions later, my “actors” decided they would rather watch movies instead of performing in them. Those countless situations ultimately inspired me to turn my dreams into a reality. And so, a career in filmmaking began.

In August 2014, I was accepted to the David Lynch MA in Film at MUM in Fairfield, IA. I quit my full-time job producing in Brooklyn and moved out to the Midwest to make films under the name of my favorite film director, David Lynch. My short film Horizon” (a newly edited 10 minute version) was selected as a finalist in the short film competition judged by David Lynch.

“Kennedy Hill” is my master thesis film at the DLMA in which I received my Masters of Art degree.  I wrote, produced and directed the short film which is set in the late 1930s about a 17 year-old girl named Grace who finds out she’s adopted.

A proud alumni from the School of Visual Arts in New York City with a BFA in Film & Video for Directing.
