Adriana Vecchioli is a French-Italian filmmaker who is a rare combination of fierce and cute. Her work has received accolades from HollyShorts, Flicker's Rhode Island and many others.

Formerly a software engineer, she left a cushy job at Twitter to pursue her life-long obsession for filmmaking and immersive storytelling. Blending cutting-edge technology with artistry, Adriana has designed XR experiences for Warner Bros., Disney, NBA, The Hunger Games, Coachella, Bose, Snapchat, and more.

Adriana revels in telling visceral stories of enigmatic women, quiet rage and revolt, subverting expectations with dark humor. She's written, successfully funded and directed three award-winning short films, all of which she also starred in because she's a monster. Her drama short HOW FAR won multiple awards and her genre-defying short COMIN' IN HOT has just debuted its festival run.

Her work has been exhibited in London, Paris, Barcelona, Los Angeles and more. A true multicultural explorer, she speaks five languages and is an alumna of UCLA TFT and UCB in Los Angeles, ESCP Europe, and Cours Florent in Paris.
