Biography:
Annie Young Frisbie earned an MA in Cinema Studies at NYU while waiting on customers at the infamous Kim's Underground video store. She cleared art for Pollock, placed products for Spike Lee and Todd Haynes, and spent five weeks in Iceland on a Hal Hartley movie. She carries a WGA card and taught screenwriting to college students. She's been to Sundance twice as a journalist and once as a filmmaker. Annie would rather watch a 1950s Hollywood drama than an artsy foreign film, unless it's by Fassbinder or Visconti. She lives in Queens with gaffer husband John Frisbie and daughter Beatrice. She blogs at Reading is my Superpower and hawks her crafting wares at Trixie-Bee.
