Andrea Nordgren is a Colorado-based commercial, branded content, and film director whose visual approach to telling moving and inspiring stories is intimate, vibrant, and human. Her nomadic childhood shaped her into a highly agile creator with an intense curiosity about human behavior, a life-long wanderlust, and a passion for championing diverse communities, cultures, and causes. She has a degree in psychology and a background as a substance-abuse therapist, which elevate her natural ability to genuinely connect with people. While her roots began in docu-style storytelling and she is highly-skilled in working with real people, she is experienced in the narrative space and loves working with professional talent. Andrea’s set style is frequently described as calm and collaborative. When not obsessed with prep or directing, she is likely hiking, running, or attending a film festival.
A persistent ally and activist for diversity, equity, and inclusion, she serves as an industry mentor and advocates for representation in front of and behind the lens. She is a member of Alliance for Women Directors and is Executive Producer on the 3% Movement team, a conference and community sparking positive change in representation in advertising and media.
Her recent films include: A Song for Imogene, a narrative feature which had its world premiere at the 2023 Bentonville Film Festival; All Choked Up, a narrative short, which had its world premiere at 2023 Aspen ShortsFest; Reed Gig and Ghost Town, both narrative shorts in production in July 2023. She just finished directing and producing BTS/EPK on Rez Ball, a LeBron James film by Sydney Freeland and Sterlin Harjo. Andrea is currently working on the development of two features: Double Jesus, a dark comedy, and Fallout, a post-apocalyptic dystopian feminist thriller.
