Diane is a writer/director who is drawn to magical realism and science fiction/fantasy. Her favourite topics to explore usually involve mental illness, or the dark side of love and spirituality. Her sense of humour is very dry, so she tends to stick to drama.
She received her Bachelor of Arts in Film Studies and Literature/Writing from Columbia University, and her Master of Fine Arts in Writing for the Screen + Stage from Northwestern University.
Diane wrote, directed, and produced the short film Replica, which was selected for the 2020 Bristol Science Film Festival and is now streaming on Amazon Prime in the US and the UK and Vimeo VOD worldwide.
She also directed the short film Penny Foster, which was selected for the 2019 National Screen Institute Online Short Film Festival.
Her young adult fantasy pilot script, Lucy, was also a second rounder at the 2018 Austin Film Festival Script Competition.
And Diane was a finalist for the 2008 Zach Braff Film Grant while still a graduate student at Northwestern, for a short film script called Couple Skate.
Currently she is in post-production on a proof-of-concept film she directed for a science fiction television series called The Time Is Right. And she also works her day job as the Star Trek Franchise Assets Coordinator.
Liliath & Penumbra is her company.
