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 also recently selected to be screened in Findlay University's new multimedia wing.

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

Her most recent work, Lost Sock Collection was just named an Official Selection at the 2019 Manchester International Film Festival.

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.
