Arom Choi

Denver, Colorado United States
Available for Freelance


Arom Choi is a South Korean writer and director based in Colorado Springs. She teaches Filmmaking at Colorado College as an assistant professor. She received an MFA degree in Film Directing at CalArts and her graduating thesis “Knock Knock Knock,” premiered at San Diego Asian Film Festival 2018 and screened at international festivals and venues. Born and raised in Seoul, she’s lived and farmed in Australia and traveled all around the world. The experience sparked her curiosity as an observer of people and places and inspired her work as a filmmaker. She is currently in post-production of her newest short film, “Uninvited”, where she experiments with limited visual framing and offscreen sound to explore characters through their larger environment and examine mental health issues. Having studied theater and graphic design and been inspired by films that show female alienation and liberation by diluting the limits between documentary and fiction (Chantal Akerman, Agnès Varda), Arom leans into character-driven narratives and a magical-realist style of filmmaking.
