About Shubhangi Shekhar.


Shubhangi Shekhar is a multi-hyphenate creator hailing from the mid-western suburbs of St. Louis, Missouri, and an undergraduate from New York University.


She has development, digital production, directing, writing, marketing, and journalism experience from award-winning and critically acclaimed global media companies such as A24, Verizon Media, Roy Kapur Films, Condé Nast Entertainment, and Patreon.


She was also part of the inaugural class of The Salon Mentorship Program for up-and-coming South Asian talent in the directing track, under the mentorship of TV director Anu Valia. She has also received The New York City Women in Film (Pano) microgrant as a producer, and the Brown Girl Magazine x The Cosmos Care Fund microgrant as a writer and director for her projects. She is currently a WIF Creative Documentary Producing Fellow.

Her artistic voice is fundamentally rooted in the cross-section between Western and South Asian cinema, and she aims to tell unique stories that gauge mass audiences across language, cultural, and gender barriers.
