Rhea Bozzacchi earned her BA in Film & Video at Columbia College Chicago. She realized she wanted to be a filmmaker the day her aunt high-kicked her dad in the face, but she’ll explain that another time. She has worked as an editor, in Chicago and Los Angeles, for past nine years, while writing and directing her own films. Her films have screened at Outfest, TWIST, and Chicago REEL Shorts Festival. Day by day, she can be found making lattes to survive financially, playing drums to survive mentally, and humming Alanis Morrisette to survive emotionally.
