Screenwriter & Director
Zoe Kerr is a semi-nomadic director and writer. Between working as a dramaturg for a movement theater company, educating youth on parole, and being the only woman working in a finance office (for real), she writes high-concept genre pieces that focus on complicated family dynamics, feminine rage, and the concepts of fate and free will and whether we really have a choice in who and what we become.
She is currently developing several pilots, including Prey For Us, which won second place in the Pilot Category of the Slamdance Screenplay Competition, semifinalist for the Moonshot Initiative Pilot Accelerator and the ATX TV Fest Pitch Competition, quarter-finalist for the Screencraft TV Pilot Competition, and was in the Top 50 in the Launch Pad Pilot Competition.
Her writing and direction has been recognized by the Dallas-Fort Worth Critics Forum, the Austin Film Festival, WeScreenplay, the Garry Marshall New Works Festival, the Millay Arts Core Residency, the Helene Wurlitzer Foundation Arts Residency, the Dallas Film Alliance Critics Forum, the American Literary Review, the Dramatists Guild, and Writers Digest, among others.
Zoe is represented by Russell Hollander at Fourth Wall Management.
