Rosanne Limoncelli is the Director of Production for Film and New Media at the Kanbar Institute, Tisch School of the Arts, New York University. She received her BFA from the Department of Film & TV at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts and her PhD in Teaching Reading, Writing, and Media from NYU’s Steinhardt School. She has been teaching writing and filmmaking to students and teachers since 1989, and has served as a consultant in the area of teacher education to high schools, colleges and universities.
In recent years, much of Rosanne’s focus has been on writing mystery novels, short stories and a filmmaking textbook. But in the last year she has been shifting that focus to make room for more filmmaking. In March of 2015, Rosanne finished LIBERTY, a short film about a young woman finding the courage to make a positive change in her life. Currently Rosanne is in post production for another short film, RELATIVITY, about the interaction between a man and the biological mother he never knew. Feature projects in development, MY FRIEND CLARA, which takes place in 1909 New York, about an Italian immigrant who meets a Jewish immigrant during the garment workers strike and TERESA which follows a young Afro-Carribean American woman in present day New York City as she endeavors to overcome many challenges.
