JAMES BIRD – Director, Writer, Producer
James Bird is a Native American writer/director from Southern California. He was raised by his single mother, often living in a car with his two siblings, bouncing from city to city. He left high school to pursue a life of storytelling, and it wasn’t long before Hollywood took notice. James’s first film, From Above starred award-winning actor Danny Glover and fellow Native American actors Graham Greene and Tantoo Cardinal. He made his directorial debut with his second film, the indie hit Eat Spirit Eat, which garnered awards throughout the festival circuit. Having never met his father, this film was a spin on his own life, showing us that family doesn’t always mean blood-related; sometimes ‘family’ means the people around you.

His latest film HONEYGLUE is set to be released theatrically this June. James definitely pushed the boundaries of indie filmmaking to the edge with HONEYGLUE. He worked with ‘opposites’ as often as he could, with topics such as gay and straight, film and digital, boy and girl, and lastly, life and death. In the end, the viewer hopefully realizes that none of these labels matters – what matters is to love and to be loved.

ANYA REMIZOVA – Producer and Music
Anya Remizova is a producer/film composer and co-founder of Zombot Pictures. Anya is a firm believer in making dreams come true with your own hands. That’s why one day she decided to pack her bags and come to America to make music and films – which is exactly what she is doing now. Anya is also currently studying Film scoring at UCLA, working on her own music album, and trying to make a better, cruelty-free world for the animals.
