director
Richa Rudola is an award-winning NYC-based filmmaker. Films were not a big part of Richa’s childhood growing up in India, but it wasn’t until pursuing a statistics graduate degree in the U.S that she discovered independent and foreign cinema and fell in love with the medium. Her first short film, TAAZA KHOON (FRESH BLOOD), screened at Nashville Film Festival and won 7 awards across 27 film festivals eventually picking up distribution by Shorts TV India. She received the 2019 Future of Film is Female award for her second short film THE SEAL. She has directed Off Broadway plays and films for Visible Poetry Project. Richa’s scripts have been shortlisted for Oscar-qualifying festivals such as HollyShorts Film Festival, Nashville Film Festival and received accolades from ScreenCraft Film Fund and Shore Scripts Film Fund. She was selected as 1 of 50 film directors from across the world for the Shore Scripts' Directors Roster. Her film writings have appeared on Static Mass Emporium, a UK-based independent film publication. Richa is a strong proponent for increasing diversity in storytelling and serves as the Vice President of Development for NYC Women Filmmakers, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting women in film.
