Savannah Bloch is an American/South African filmmaker and graduate of the USC school of Cinematic Arts. Her thesis film, No Time For Holiday, was distributed by Shorts International HD and ranked in the top ten films about teen angst in the United States. After graduation, Savannah started shooting and directing promotional content for non-profits and start-up companies around the world. This type of work led her to the townships of South Africa, interviews with natives Bolivians and to Jordan, where she filmed children of the Syrian war receive serious medical attention. Savannah also worked during this time as a freelance cinematographer, combining her love of travel, culture, cameras and storytelling into a unique and pivotal experience. After this glimpse into global affairs, Savannah returned to Los Angeles armed with a handful of stories and a new perspective to focus on narrative directing. In 2012, she directed Sister Cities as part of the Hollywood Fringe festival. There she met Then There Was Eve co-writer, Colette Freedman. The show had four sold out performances and rave reviews demonstrating a new found talent for the stage. She then worked as an assistant to director Sean Hanish on his independent film Return To Zero starring Minnie Driver. Subsequently, in 2014 Savannah moved to New York City to study stage directing at The Barrow Group and hone her skills working with actors. In early 2015, she returned to Los Angeles to be the cinematographer on the independent film, Quality Problems, and begin her journey towards her feature film directorial debut, Then There Was Eve.
In addition to powerful storytelling, Savannah is passionate about social innovation, feminism, surfing and veganism.
Savannah works locally in Los Angeles, New York, San Diego and Cape Town.
