My name is Keely Liles and I am an independent filmmaker and photographer. I was trained in non-fiction film development and production. Between September 2019 – August 2020, I developed, directed, shot, edited, and produced my documentary directorial debut, Embrace Your Pleasure. Almost a year after I finished my film, the film has been selected to premiere at five international film festivals and one U.S based festival. Following my film’s success, I have turned my attention to learning about narrative film production. I am studying screenwriting, cinematography, and directing, and I am currently in pre-production for my first short film. I have also been a production assistant on several local projects.
