Artist Bio

Timothy Jacob Elledge is a Brooklyn-based filmmaker. He was raised in Buffalo, New York and graduated from the CUNY Brooklyn College Dept. of Film in 2015. The River. My Brother, Me was his undergraduate thesis film. It had its world premiere at the 2015 Hollyshorts Film Festival. The film explores the nature of our first encounters with fate and grief.

Timothy states: “I believe the film uses the story of a broken nuclear family to prompt important questions regarding grief and the dangers of escapism. We must learn to accept that to re-write our past is an impossible task.” This is the film’s Southwest US premiere.
