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


His films explore the lives of people who create homes in unconventional spaces and places.


Lance was a 2019 Sundance Ignite Fellow, named one of Filmmaker Magazine's 25 New Faces of Independent Film 2019, and is the youngest contributor to The New York Times Op-Docs.


His films have been screened at film festivals across the world including Sundance, Rotterdam, Tribeca, True/False, and featured at the Museum of Modern Art and the Smithsonian.  


On the interweb, his films have appeared on The New York Times (as three Op-Docs), The Atlantic, Vimeo (as six Staff Picks), NoBudge, and Short of the Week.


Lance graduated from Harvard University’s Visual and Environmental Studies program in 2019.


His first feature, SOME KIND OF HEAVEN, premiered at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival.
