Gramigna currently freelances, producing and directing branded content and interactive audio experiences but plans to shoot her debut feature film, an unconventional thriller, in 2018.
She is a proud member of the FilmmakeHers, a co-leader of The Filmshop and is an activist for underrepresented voices in film.
