If you want to work on your art, work on your life.
— Anton Chekhov

Meredith Edwards is an award-winning filmmaker, theatre director, producer, and artist based in New York.  Her feature film directorial debut, IMAGINE I'M BEAUTIFUL, took home twelve awards on the film festival circuit, including four Best Pictures, and was named #8 of OscarWorld's Top 10 Films of 2014.  The film was distributed theatrically and digitally by Candy Factory Films.  Meredith has been working in the arts for over a decade.  Hailing from the North Carolina coast, she's always had an awareness and sharp eye for life's complexities and detail.  Meredith graduated with honors from the University of North Carolina Wilmington and Roehampton University in London with a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre.  In 2007 she moved to Los Angeles where she earned her SAG card and reclaimed her voice as an artist.  In 2008 she moved to New York and has been working as a renaissance woman ever since.  As an artist and story teller, Meredith is interested in the gray areas, specifically shedding light on the dark ones.  She's not afraid to dive deep or get dirty and is most inspired to share stories that open people's eyes and shake them to the core.
