Ella Lukowiak is a 17 year old filmmaker, writer, and spoken word poet from the Jersey Shore. She is a current Freshman at the University of South Carolina Honors College studying English: Creative Writing.

She is a 2022 YoungArts Winner in Spoken Word Poetry. Her films have been official selections in the Phantoscope Film Festival, Smiles Film Festival, Flint Youth Film Festival, and the Student World Impact Film Festival. They have received, respectively, Best Lead Performance, Honorable Mention, and Best Cinematography (16-18 non-fiction).

After audiences have viewed her films, she hopes that they find themselves reflecting upon their own views of the world.
