Jasmine Golphin is an independent filmmaker and creative writer from Cleveland Ohio who has a nearly unhealthy obsession with the art of storytelling. She wrote, directed and produced the web series To New Beginnings (2016) , directed the first season of The Adventures of Fab Jenkins (2016), has been published in HitRecord’s Tiny Book of Tiny Stories vol 3 (2013), in various online publications like Indiewire and Alturus and placed second in Octavia Spencer’s Short Film competition (2013). Currently she is working on The Whitebox: Redux, a documentary web series exploring the experiences artists of color in Cleveland. She also mentors high school students, typically female and non-binary students of color interested in visual storytelling through programs with MyCom, Neighborhood Leadership Instituted and the Cleveland International Film Festival.
Jasmine’s focus is on telling stories of marginalized people in whether medium may suit that story best – narrative or nonfiction, essay or podcast, feature film or series, and whatever new storytelling technology is to come. More than anything, she sees as art is not just a path for self expression but also a way to connect to one another. To see yourself in someone else’s story and feel perhaps a little less alone.
