Devany Greenwood is an acclaimed French-American writer and director, based in Los Angeles. Her work is rooted primarily in poetics, exploring the feminine, and unraveling the many layers of trauma. Through the female gaze, she brings an inimitable tenderness and vulnerability to visual narratives across a range of genres, flourishing in the minutiae of silences and negative space. In 2021, she founded Cosmica Productions, with a deep focus on amplifying and empowering marginalized voices.

 

Her feature script, Into the Thicket, is a unique blend of magical realism and coming-of-age drama, forging a visionary journey into female empowerment and a fearlessly nuanced exploration of sexuality. It has gained significant acclaim, scoring 9/10 on The Black List, and placing as Semifinalist in WeScreenplay’s Feature Screenwriting Competition (2022), and Quarterfinalist in Outstanding Screenplays Feature Competition (2021). 

 

In 2023, she completed a proof of concept for her feature (of the same name) which premiered at Oscar® and BAFTA-qualifying LA Shorts International Film Festival, in addition to garnering multiple accolades at IndieX Film Festival, and Waco Independent Film Festival.

 

Currently, she is in pre-production for two upcoming films; Ex Memoria, a visceral horror-drama short which explores the insidious ripple effects of childhood sexual abuse (slated for release in 2025), and Hug of Thunder, a French romantic-drama short (set to begin principal photography in Paris in 2025).
