Rachel Wolther is a NYC-based Producer and Writer. She is a graduate of the Northwestern University School of Communication where she founded the Women Filmmaker’s Alliance, a group dedicated to unifying, educating and promoting filmmakers in the Chicago Area. In 2009, Rachel wrote and produced her first feature film SCHIZCAGO, about a gang of hipsters who fake their way into clinical trials and peddle their tastes as corporate youth consultants. Her experimental films, shot on toy cameras or hand-developed 16mm film, have screened in vacant lots and movie palaces, appearing in favorite festivals Bearded Child and Darryl’s Hard Liquor and Porn.
In addition to writing and producing, Rachel is also an expert in post-production processes and video encoding. She was previously a projectionist at the Gene Siskel Film Center in Chicago and IFC Center in NYC.
Rachel recently wrapped production on the narrative feature SEE YOU NEXT TUESDAY, directed by Drew Tobia, and is currently developing two feature comedies for 2013.
