JETSKI w_ Dad.jpg

Lance Oppenheim is a filmmaker from South Florida. He is terrified of jet-skiing and was much braver when he was six years old. 

Inspired by the larger-than-life stories that unfolded around him in his native South Florida, Lance has been making films since he was in his teens. In college, he became the youngest active contributor to The New York Times Op-Docs and received six Vimeo Staff Picks.

Lance is a former Sundance Ignite Fellow, has been featured as one of Filmmaker Magazine's 25 New Faces of Independent Film, and was named one of Forbes' 30 Under 30 in 2022.

His first feature,
SOME KIND OF HEAVEN, premiered at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival and was released by Magnolia Pictures and Hulu in 2021 to critical acclaim.

Lance has worked with brand clients including Google, Apple & Tribeca, Yahoo, Blizzard, Cox, and Chinet. 

He is currently in production on a series with HBO and Josh and Benny Safdie’s Elara Pictures, as well as a feature with FX/Hulu and The New York Times, both releasing in early 2024.
