Milla Lewis (UK) is a filmmaker and photographer whose work focuses on the intersection of history, memory and myth. Drawn to the discord between the stories that form us and the stories we tell ourselves, she is interested in how individuals experience inner conflicts around their pillars of reality, and how these relate to themes of isolation and belonging.

Milla was selected as a Sundance Ignite Fellow in 2023, and she was the recipient of the Directing Mentorship Programme at the Polish National Film School in Łódź in 2021. She received a 1st Class (Hons) degree in Photography in 2019, where her work won multiple awards. Her films have screened internationally, including at Tirana Film Festival, Cinema On The Washing Line, 14th LGBT Film Festival Poland, and the BFI. 

She is currently developing her second narrative short with support of the Sundance Institute.
