About Eliot Michl

Eliot Michl is an American filmmaker and poet.

Michl grew up in Northwest Missouri spending many afternoons wandering the wooded forests and river banks near her log-cabin home.

In 2017, she directed her first poetry film, Don’t Tell Me I’m Beautiful, which screened in the US at the Seattle’s Arts in Nature festival. The film was chosen as an Official Selection of the 2018 Juteback Poetry Film Festival, an international film festival focused on Videopoetry. The film was chosen again as an Official Selection of the 2019 All Together Now festival of Fine Art and Short Film. The film was selected to be screened in Findlay University's new multimedia wing, and most recently the film was awarded Official Selection laurels and screens at the Lincoln Short Film Festival in collaboration with the Cube Art Project.

Michl’s second release, School of Life is an Official Selection at the 2018 Miniature Film Festival in Vancouver, Canada.

Her film, Lost Sock Collection was named an Official Selection at the 2019 Manchester International Film Festival and again at the SHORT to the Point Film Festival in Bucharest, Romania.

Michl’s most recent film Return of the Unchartable Soul was named a Semi-Finalist at the Cadence Video Poetry Festival and selected to be featured as a poem in the The Menteur and screen in Paris this summer.

Michl travels widely, writing and performing her hand-written works, creating poetry films, and championing the lost art of epistolary communication as the featured poet of the Epistolary Club.
