PRESS + PANELS
Rooney Elmi is a culture writer and film programmer with a hyperfocus on nonfiction cinema. Her essays and interviews have been published in Film Comment, i-D, DAZED, Real Life Magazine, The FADER, Hyperallergic, among many others.
Interests in internationalism, cyber culture, and anti-capitalism lead to her brainchild,
, a annual print and digital movie magazine, geared toward curating a radical cinephilia. The self-published editorial has been read and housed around the world and remains one of the extremely rare, feminist print film publications in circulation.
Additionally, she has held the title of director of development of Ohio Film Group, a state-of-the-art post production studio, handling film acquisitions and marketing. Elmi is currently gearing up to produce her debut documentary feature, Seen, alongside seven filmmakers from the U.S travel ban nations.
