Lindsey speaks Japanese, spent more than 6 years living overseas, and focuses on acting as attempt to bridge understanding through humor and empathy.

She started shooting film and developing prints from the time she was 13 with her dad’s old Nikkormat camera.

The Connect Film Festival emerged out of Lindsey’s work on both sides of the lens.

It has Connect Screenings in 4 cities. Connect was honored with a Top 100 Best Reviewed festival ranking out of over 4,600 festivals in both 2016, 2017, and 2018 by Film Freeway. It is endorsed by Filmmaker’s Alliance and the Director List and recognized by industry organizations such as IFP Festival Forum and AFM Festival roundtable. It has been granted industry status by festivals such as Tribeca, LA Film Festival, and the Academy qualifying short film festival LA Shorts. As filmmakers attest, Connect remains grounded in its grassroots as a filmmaker’s gathering to connect creatives: in filmmaker’s words and filmmaker’s can submit year-round. It has had 5 festivals and a total of 13 events as of March 2020.
Connect Productions launched in May 2017, with the female buddy dramedy “To Life.” It was shot in Austin Texas with 11 Connect Filmmakers from Los Angeles, Phoenix, Boston and throughout Texas, converging in Texas to join over a dozen other local filmmakers and shoot in partnership with director Diane M. Dresback’s company Mindclover Productions. All Connect Film Festival outreach is geared towards creative collaboration, support, employment and the creation of more high quality collaborative film projects.
