Director, producer, writer
Eri Yokoyama is a director, producer and writer who has worked on film and TV productions in New York City, including the Oscar-nominated feature documentary Cutie and the Boxer, the Japanese network television show Morning Satellite, and her short film “Still“, which premiered at the Academy Award-qualifying Short Shorts Film Festival.
When Eri moved to the U.S. from Japan at age 18 to study dance, she didn’t know a bit of English. That was the beginning of many years of jumping feet first into new and sometimes surprising experiences that took her to Delaware, Tennessee, Missouri, Tokyo, and New York.
Eri is currently working as a field producer on the new feature documentary Last Call and is in preproduction on a sci-fi romance short she wrote and is directing.
