Hailing from the bucolic English countryside, award-winning director Emily Anderson has spent her career telling people’s stories. She’s shot commercials for Incontinence pads, Ford Trucks, and Vodka which was her favorite job, as she got paid in it. Her documentary work has taken her all over the globe — reporting from the top of an Icelandic glacier, to filming in heavy surf in Mexico, to getting lost in the remote Australian Outback — but her favorite place to film is Montauk, where she calls home.
As a teenager in Krakow, Poland, Kasia dreamed of becoming either a film journalist or a painter. In the end she chose a corporate path and become a lawyer - but her passion for the cinema and the arts remained and grew stronger than ever. She loves traveling the globe (over 80 countries visited and counting), exploring other cultures, documenting her experiences, and always searching for Monet paintings in local museums.
And of course, whenever the time allows – watching movies. As an attorney, she advised Polish filmmakers and was heavily involved in negotiating contracts for the Polish Film Awards.
Kasia is one of the founding members of Offshore Art & Film. She consults on organizational and legal matters, judges the submitted movies and is the acting Volunteer Coordinator. She can’t wait to go back to Montauk and see the Offshore Art & Film Festival hitting it off with its summer audience!
