Celine Sutter 
based in new york city

Celine Sutter (they/she) is a New York City-born and raised writer, director, and producer. Celine’s work focuses on the intersection of reality and fiction and the unique behavior of gender-nonconforming and queer characters. Celine is interested in fraught, dynamic character-driven stories that do not just focus on the character’s gender or sexuality but weave their queerness, flaws, and strengths into the inherent fabric of the story – a vehicle for representation that reaches beyond identity politics and connects viewers to these unlikely leads through sharing their universal human emotional states with unique specificity.


Celine began working in production during their undergraduate degree from NYU’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study, where they graduated Cum Laude with a double major in filmmaking and environmental justice. Celine wrote, directed, and produced short films and music videos, most notably the music video for Maya Hawke's "Sweet Tooth". Celine has also worked as an associate producer for Astrea Media and as an assistant editor to Oscar-nominated editor Mary Manhardt on social and environmental documentary projects.


Pursuing their own narrative and creative work in the meantime, Celine was accepted to Columbia University’s School of the Arts Graduate film program where they are currently completing their MFA in writing-directing. They were recently awarded the New York Women in Film and Television scholarship as well as the James Bridges Award for Directing the Actors. They are now in the process of completing their thesis film,"Glitch Baby".
