Roxy Mitchell Takes the Film Industry by Storm

Los Angeles-based filmmaker Roxy Mitchell has been getting recognition for her work in the industry, having written and produced three feature films in the course of her colorful career. She has won multiple awards and has been named a finalist in several other respectable competitions. Despite her undeniable success, Roxy remained humble and inspired to elevate her craft, choosing to focus more on being a screenwriter over the past few years. 

Today, she is working on “Elektra,” a coming-of-age punk-rock musical comedy-drama that explores the convergence of self-discovery, rebellion, and love. Her creativity always leans towards being able to tell the stories that are not told, including putting people of color at the forefront of her projects. If anything, Roxy likes to be divergent when it comes to her original projects. At the end of the day, she puts a high premium on authenticity, knowing that movie fans are always drawn to projects that introduce a whole new experience.

Roxy studied film at UC Santa Cruz. Interestingly, she studied screenwriting for a total of eight years, owing a huge part of who she is today to the mentors she worked with while there. “I feel that the medium of film is an incredible way to impact the world. I want to make a difference in people’s lives by offering people a sense of peace and belonging through storytelling,” she explained. 

Roxy understands fully well how the entertainment and film businesses can get, most especially to young talents who are just starting out. For one, opportunities for aspiring screenwriters, like many key positions, do not always come easy. But Roxy has this to say: “Keep writing, even if you’re not 100% confident in your work. The learning is always in the doing. Even the best writers started from the bottom.”

Just like all other careers, being a filmmaker or screenwriter is not a walk in the park. Roxy’s formula for success is one that is composed of very familiar attributes that a lot of people tend to overlook. But whenever they look at whatever she has achieved in life, Roxy wants them to realize that she only practiced values that are common to many. “The key to success is persistence. Prevailing in spite of failure, not quitting when being told ‘no,’ and not allowing others to determine your capabilities,” she explained.

At the moment, Roxy is actively searching for the right producer who will bring “Elektra” to life. Her short-term goal at this point in her career is to get “Elektra” produced and streamed. While there are many talented producers in the entertainment industry today who can do that, Roxy is not looking for someone who merely has the talent. She hopes to find someone who shares her vision and ideals as a filmmaker and screenwriter and someone committed enough to bring her project to the next level. Here are some recent awards she has won: Best Comedy Feature Screenplay at Big Apple Film Festival,  Best Comedy Screenplay at the New York International Film Awards, Best Comedy Screenplay at the Oniros Film Awards, Gold Award in Script Writing in the WRPN Screenplay Competition, and Best Character in a Screenplay at the Die Laughing Film Festival.

As for her long-term goal, Roxy intends to be instrumental in shifting the nature of the film industry. She wants to drive the industry toward more inclusivity, especially where it concerns screenwriters. Additionally, she aspires to one day establish her own production company that will give marginalized groups a voice.
