Danielle Criqui is a Los Angeles based Filmmaker. She recieved an MFA in film production from UCLA in Spring 2023.
Prior to graduate school she received a BFA in Photography from the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) in 2010. From arts school she went on to spend the following decade deeply immersed in Baltimore Maryland’s DIY community– organizing music and art events, producing an annual arts publication, creating short films, and editing and directing Fields - her first feature length documentary about a Baltimore based music festival.
By focusing on the more droll moments of modernity, Danielle approaches filmmaking with both an observational and introspective mentality. When seen through a certain lens, even the most mundane instances can begin to warp into something funny, tragic, beautiful, or surreal. She aims to speak to the larger universal experience– to the wordless, feelings that create for better or worse, a connection between us.
