Erin Smith is a video editor and filmmaker. She started editing as a way to stay involved in filmmaking while saving up for a camera, and in the process unexpectedly fell in love with documentary and experimental cinema. Erin has been mentoring with Reel Grrls since the summer of 2014, and absolutely loves the RG mission of providing unprivileged youth with empowering skills, and getting gear in the hands of those who may be pushed out of the way in other settings.

Erin graduated from The University of Washington in 2014 with a degree in Film Studies, specifically focusing her studies on the relationship between gender and media, auteur theory, and the intersection of film and nation.
