Maribeth Romslo

Maribeth Romslo is a director, cinematographer and producer whose feature film Dragonfly premiered at the Los Angeles Women's International Film Festival and was selected for "Best of the Fest" at the Minneapolis St. Paul International Film Festival. In 2015, she produced a feature-length documentary, Our Journey Home, about how home shapes us, with celebrity narrator singer-songwriter Jewel. As a young girl, she dreamed of being an astronaut. In seventh grade, she attended Space Camp and was shuttle commander on the mock space travel mission. While she turned her interests to visual arts in high school and beyond, she has a deeply rooted curiosity about science, especially in how technology connects us as humans.
