Lissette Feliciano is a writer, director and a graduate of NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. She is a member of the Alliance of Women Directors and has a penchant for social impact narratives. Her work often includes magical realism, the moniker of idols Gabriell Garcia Marquez and Isabel Allende. Her most recent short film With Children premiered at Cinequest 2017 and depicts a single mother’s struggle with wage inequality in the 1970’s. As a director/producer she fights for equal representation of women in front of the camera and behind the camera because she believes strongly that representation matters. If strong women are represented in the media it will influence young women to become those strong women in real life.
