Cinematographer, Camera Operator, First Assistant Camera

Sophia Cacciola is a director and cinematographer concentrating on sociopolitical horror and sci-fi feature films including the feminist vampire throwback, Blood of the Tribades, the cerebral time-loop trance, Magnetic, and the dark social satire, Clickbait. Her latest films are a double-feature of the mockumentary The Once and Future Smash and the accompanying slasher, End Zone 2.

Her award-winning films have played at more than 70 film festivals and have been distributed worldwide. Sophia began her career as a punk singer-songwriter-drummer in the no-wave band, Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling.

Statement: I cherish the opportunity to use genre to tell fantastic stories and to make sociopolitical statements. With genre, the visual and auditory languages are unlimited - the entire world is yours to create with deliberate, colorful lighting and camera and performances ranging from extremely grounded to extremely stylized.
