A graduate of Emerson College (Boston) and the Canadian Film Center’s Director’s Lab, Elza’s first feature film, Graveyard Alive – A zombie nurse in love, played in over 20 international film festivals including Fantasia, Fantasporto and Sitges, winning the Kodak Cinematography Award at the Slamdance Film Festival. It was distributed on TMN, on DVD by Maple Pictures, and in theaters.
Her second feature film, Go in the Wilderness, premiered at the Festival du Nouveau Cinema, played in various international film festivals, and is being distributed on various platforms, including itunes. She has obtained development financing from Telefilm, SODEC and CALQ for the feature scripts Night of the Pendulum, Le fantôme de la Libération, Brothers in Arms, and Sweet Blood. Sweet Blood was selected to the 2012 Frontie?res Co-Production Market, the 2017 Torino SeriesLab, and pitched at the Series Mania Co-Production Forum (Paris).

She has attended the TIFF Talent Lab, the Berlinale Talent Campus, and the Telluride Student Symposium. She is one of the co-founders of the Montreal chapter of Film Fatales.
When a mild-mannered, average, size 12 cashier working alongside pencil-thin society girls in a trendy clothing store witnesses their grisly deaths at the hands (legs?) of a possessed pair of designer jeans, she must get to the bottom (ass?) of what’s driving the evil SLAXX and try to stop the slaughter.
