Jasira Andrus is a Seattle based writer and director.  A lifelong lover of film, Jasira has spent the past year taking a hands-on approach to learning the foundations of filmmaking, so she can create her own works.  Through completing several education programs at Northwest Film Forum, Jasira was able to write and co-direct her first short film, “The Mimic”. She was also selected as the writer/director apprentice for Northwest Film Forum’s Action! Narrative Apprenticeship Program, and completed her second short, “Babs’ Bouquets”. Jasira’s works incorporate surrealism and comedy, and have explored themes such as artistic vulnerability, grief, and relationships.  Aside from screenwriting, Jasira is also in the process of writing her first graphic novel.
