Meryl Jones Williams

Meryl Jones Williams (she / her b. 1986; Staten Island) is a multidisciplinary artist and activist residing in Brooklyn. She got her start as an actor and can be seen in some indie flicks and silly TV shows, but was ultimately unable to stomach the objectification within the industry. Since then, she’s found great joy through creating her own work and prioritizing social justice as paramount and essential to the creative sphere. As a filmmaker, she’s co-produced and acted in various shorts, but her greatest love is in directing and composing music/singing. She directed her first short last summer called DOM, now screening at festivals and is currently developing two feature films to direct, one UNTITLED and one called GOLDILOCKS. Meryl is currently a TA at Brooklyn-based film school Mononoaware and is honored to be a part of and learn from such an inspiring community. When not making stuff, you can find her in the mountains.
