Simone LeClaire is a 28 year old white woman who grew up on Leech Lake Indian Reservation, obtained film and sociology degrees in Moorhead, MN, and has lived in Minneapolis for five years. As a filmmaker she is interested in self-interrogation and exploring the intersection of art, social justice, and community engagement. Most notably she is the director of the award-winning Elemental series of retold fairy tales, and production manager of the internationally acclaimed web series Theater People Season Four. Her short films Water (2016), New (2017), Air (2018) and Earth (2018) have screened at film festivals around the country, as well as having been featured in multiple Minneapolis screenings. Her latest film, To Ana (2019) premiered at the Fargo Film Festival in March 2019 (upcoming screenings here.) 

Simone is currently in post-production on her narrative short Fire, and in pre-production of her first web series, Undefined. In collaboration with Xiaolu Wang and Tahiel Jimenez, she is also launching Mischief Media to support and amplify the impact of socially-conscious narrative film in Minnesota.
