About Sydney

Sydney Relihan is an award-winning filmmaker from the Chicagoland area now based out of LA, and recent graduate of Cornell University with a B.A. in Performing & Media Arts. While primarily a writer and director, she dabbles in producing, cinematography, and film music composition, utilizing her particular skill set and confident ambition set to bring cohesive visions to life. She connects most to stories exploring relationships between complex characters and their environments and projects with diverse mental health and LGBTQIA+ representation, often through lenses of dark comedy or grounded sci-fi. But right now, she's looking to get her start on set! Sydney's willing to do just about everything as a PA, director's assistant, or producer's assistant - she's great both leading and listening, a positive and enthusiastic force on any project, and stellar at running errands (her family makes fun of how polite and detail-oriented she is ordering at drive throughs, and ask her about her 4am snowstorm shoot u-haul story). She's open to work in a writer's room or in development too!
