Emma Westenberg

director

Blessed with the gift to visually transform any setting, storyteller artist and filmmaker Emma Westenberg crafts cinematic creations imbued with a happy-go-lucky and whimsical aesthetic.

Graduated from the renowned Rietveld Academy and the Cooper Union School of Art in NYC, the director received a special distinction ‘cum laude’ for her short film ‘The Still Life of Estelle’ (2014) – which she wrote, directed, produced and art directed. Soon after she picked up an award at the Milano Fashion Film Festival for her short film ‘Blue and You’ (2016). Her first steps that would really define Emma as a filmmaker were a diverse set of projects, ranging from commercial work for the likes of ASOS and Vogue to short films and music videos. Her big breakthrough being the viral sensation PYNK (2018) for Janelle Monae, which earned Emma a Grammy and MTV Music Video Award-nomination. The same year she directed her first Super Bowl spot featuring Zoe Kravitz. Since then various star-studded projects have followed, including celebrated music videos for the likes of Troye Sivan, Princess Nokia and Rico Nasty alongside directing Kendall Jenner for Vogue and Rebel Wilson for Olly.

Emma is currently working on her first feature film and series, and is successfully juggling projects in fashion, music and fiction.
