Addison Heimann is a queer filmmaker currently residing in Los Angeles, California. His shorts and web-series have played the Chicago International Film Festival, Fantasia, Inside Out, Atlanta International, Nashville Film Festival, Outfest, and New York Television Festival among others. They can also be seen online via Dust, Omeleto, Film Shortage, and Revry.
A genre nerd, Addison spends his time binge watching anime, reading comics, and scouring the international feature section on Amazon for queer genre films to add to his Letterboxd watchlist. His goal in filmmaking is to elevate and empower queer characters in the genre space where those stories are sorely lacking. Hypochondriac is his feature directorial debut, which premiered at SXSW in 2022.
