Lara Gallagher

Lara Gallagher is a writer and director originally from rural Pennsylvania where she was raised on a steady stream of television, polka, processed food, and wooded warfare with her three sisters. Her work focuses on small towns, dysfunctional families, and the kind of humor and relationships that are only possible when everything else is screwed up. Her shorts and music videos have screened at SXSW, Palm Springs Shortfest, Mill Valley, Portland International, DC Shorts, and online via Pitchfork, Spin, Rolling Stone, and NPR, among others. Lara recently earned her Directing MFA (with honors!) from Columbia University and was named one of IFP's 2015 Emerging Storytellers. She is currently living and developing a feature film in Portland, Oregon.
