Anna Biller's 35mm cult feature Viva and her 16mm art-film shorts have screened at major film festivals and art spaces around the world, and her work has been discussed in academic cinema journals. She is known for her huse of classic and outdated film genres to talk about females roles within culture, coding feminist ideas within cinematic aesthetics and visual pleasure. She creates all her own costumes and set designs, making many of the props and paintings as well as composing and scoring her films. She has a BA in art from UCLA, and an MFA in art and film from CalArts. She continues to work on film because of her interest in emulating the look and feel of classic cinema, and her latest film, The Love Witch, was made using only traditional film processes.
