Documentary Filmmaker and Media Educator
AnaMichele was born and raised in South Florida, the granddaughter of Cuban refugees and the descendant of Irish immigrants. Her creative work explores themes at the intersection of identity, belief, and modern culture.
In 2017, she was an Awardee of the 19th Annual Hispanic Heritage Youth Awards for her leadership in the local community in the sphere of Media & Entertainment. She continues to be a voice for positive change through social-impact filmmaking, most recently with her documentary short, The Forbidden Call. She directed the film at Loyola Marymount University. It is now streaming on the PBS app as a finalist of KCET's Fine Cut Festival of Films.
AnaMichele currently devotes her time to digital inclusion and outreach efforts at MetroEast Community Media in Gresham, Oregon and is developing her first feature documentary.
