Richard Levien Interview

IndieHouse SF Podcast

This is the initial video in a series of interviews we will be doing to feature and highlight independent filmmakers from the San Francisco Bay Area and around the world. This video presentation is a little unfinished in our rush to support the now completed fundraising campaign for Richard’s first feature film: COLLISIONS, but we’re sure you’ll enjoy it. Thanks for watching.

IndieHouse SF Interview: Richard Levien

Richard Levien has been writing, directing and editing films over a decade, and is drawn to making films about issues that he cares about deeply.

His short Immersion, about a ten-year-old boy from Mexico who speaks no English and struggles to fit in at his new school in the U.S., premiered at Slamdance in 2009. Immersion won the “No Violence” award at the Ann Arbor film festival, and “Best Bay Area” short at the San Francisco International Film Festival (SFIFF).

First Thing

In prior lives, Richard was a biologist and a rock and roll band’s lead guitarist.
