Becca is a queer narrative and documentary filmmaker who is a 2022 Academy Nicholl Fellowship semifinalist and one of Austin Film Festival's 2021 Screenwriters to Watch.
During Sundance 2020, it was announced that her feature screenplay Margo & Perry was selected for The GLAAD List, a roster of the ten most promising unmade LGBTQ-inclusive film scripts selected by The Black List and GLAAD.
She recently directed a short film version of Margo & Perry based on the feature, starring Sofia Black-D’Elia (star of Freeform’s hit show Single Drunk Female) and Annie Parisse (Friends from College). The film premiered at Austin Film Festival.

Becca’s comedy short, “Lenses” played at top film festivals, including Palm Springs International Shortfest, and it had a run at IFC Center, playing in the pre-show before all feature films.
She has also directed documentaries for the Oscar-winning production company Shine Global.
She is also an improv comedian and has been on house teams at UCB and The PIT in New York City. She co-hosts a popular podcast called They Thought I Was You, which re-examines Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's careers through a modern day feminist lens.
She lives in Los Angeles with her disturbingly handsome Australian Shepherd.
