Jocelyn Jacobs is a director, writer and filmmaker. Her work questions the nature of identity, subjectivity, power, gender and sexuality; and is influence by a deep interest in psychoanalysis. While her earlier work (some referenced here) cites filmmaking strategies, re-imagines existing texts and investigates notions of the cinematic, Jocelyn's current work dives into the craft of narrative cinema itself.
Born in California and raised in Arizona, Jocelyn Jacobs has lived in Brooklyn for the past 10 years. She has worked as a script supervisor on multiple independent films, an editor, producer and art department coordinator.
Jocelyn holds a BA from Oberlin College and an MFA from the University of California, San Diego. Her work has been shown in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Pittsburgh, San Diego, Tijuana and Toronto. Jocelyn's recent short film, MONA, played at the Maryland Film Festival, Newfest: New York's LGBT Film Festival and Inside Out: Toronto's LGBT Film Festival.
