Marnie Ellen Hertzler is a video artist, animator, and filmmaker. Her films and animations often explore a multi-media approach to film presentation and distribution and has utilized live performance, installation, and web design to accompany her work. Her films have screened at Locarno Film Festival, Rotterdam International Film Festival, MoMA, and more. In 2018 Marnie was named one of Filmmaker Magazine's 25 New Faces of Independent Film and was a 2019 IFP Narrative Lab fellow. Influenced by her background in both psychology and fine arts, she creates films that act as cinematic platforms for the exploration of interpersonal relationships, the technology that defines us, and the inevitable end of it all. During her residency at MacDowell, she continued post-production on her first feature film, Crestone and began to research and develop her next feature film.
