Irit Reinheimer is a filmmaker, writer, and ceramist based in Philadelphia. She makes short, experimental films that examine loss and inheritance through a queer lens. Influenced by an early education in sculpture, her filmmaking takes a sculptural approach. She constructs her films using her late father’s 8mm home movies, incorporating rotoscoping, archival materials, and new footage. Irit is a recent graduate of the Image Text MFA at Ithaca College, where she wrote her soon-to-be-published first book. Irit has also maintained a ceramic practice for over 15 years, mainly making functional pottery. Beyond her artistic practices, Irit has over ten years of experience working in communications for non-profits and is currently the vice-chair of the Jewish Voice for Peace National Board.
