Writer/director Meredith Berg graduated from NYU-Tisch, and while studying in NYC she adapted and directed Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar” Off-Broadway for the York Shakespeare Company. She won festival awards for her AFI’s Directing Workshop for Women horror short, “Void,” which premiered at Screamfest and was distributed by TriBeCa on Amazon. Berg worked as a development executive and comic book editor for production companies in Los Angeles, focusing primarily on genre projects, including the comic book “Cowboys and Aliens,” upon which the Jon Favreau film starring Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford is based. She co-created and directed episodes for the hit digital series "Lana Steele: Makeup Spy" for Estee Lauder Cosmetics (which has over 11 million views), an action-comedy that starred Youtube sensation, and late-night host, Lilly Singh. She was recently selected by AFI and Fox Studios as an “up-and-coming genre filmmaker to watch.”
"Dementia," her first feature script to hit theaters, was produced by BoulderLight Pictures and released by IFC. It can be viewed on Huluween, Prime, and Apple TV. Berg's psychological thriller script “Emerald Isle” will be produced by MarVista Entertainment and her thriller feature “Faceless," which was featured on the Blood List, will be directed by Norbert Heitker and produced by Silver Pictures. Berg will be directing her feature debut, supernatural thriller “All Fall Down,” from her script in Spring 2021, produced by Tara Craig of Squid Farm Productions.
She currently lives in Los Angeles.
