Emily Dinova

Emily is a Writer, Actor, Director, and Producer. She has an MA in Stage and Screen Writing from Regent’s University (London, UK), a Bachelors in English with a Theatre concentration (Writing, Directing, Acting & Film) from Marist College (Poughkeepsie, NY), and studied Opera and Classical Vocal Performance for over 13 years.

She has appeared Off-Broadway in several shows and has toured regularly both nationally and internationally. She also performs in New York City at private venues such as The Union Club and has sung at her fair share of weddings and funerals.

Emily's film, Wet Paint, which she produced and co-starred in (and wrote the original short story!) was accepted by New York Short Film Festival, Scared for your LIIFE, The Russian International Horror Film Festival, The Macabre Faire Film Festival, & was a finalist in the Videoscream International Film Festival.

Her play, Capture, a raw and visceral story of one woman’s fight against Domestic Violence, was the recipient of the 2015 Fresher Writing Prize in the United Kingdom (Best Stage Play) and was also published later that year by the Fresher Publishing Company. Capture was also a part of The Venus and Adonis Festival in NYC and was received with staggering praise. In June of 2016, it had a production in Bournemouth, UK at the Shelley Theatre and subsequently in 2017,
a production at the Seven Angels Theatre in Connecticut.

Cold Porridge was her fifth play to hit the New York Theatre scene in a little over two years (others include: The Locals [writer/actor] at The Jewel Box Theatre, Copse, [writer/director] for the Midtown International Theatre Festival and Ruptured [writer/actor] for Manhattan Rep.). Emily directed the film Transit: A NYC Fairytale, which was 187% funded through Kickstarter. The fundraising video stirred up debates and discussions on social media regarding its subject
matter with one post alone reaching 10,000 people. Emily headed a promotional campaign for the film at the 2019 Pride Parade in NYC. The film is currently on the festival circuit.

Emily’s short story The Dramma was published in Haunted MTL’s first Horror Anthology. Her short story An Old Life Of Youth was published and featured on Literally Stories as a “Saturday Special” (only six writers in the last six-plus years have been given this honor).

Emily is an avid traveler, constantly looking to explore new places, cultures, and people, which serves as the inspiration for a lot of her work. She’s completed three novels, Bode, The Antagonist, and Veil of Seduction (the latter is in the process of being published!) Emily’s first web novel Confinement is published with EGlobal Creative Publishing.

Emily is a member of the Actors Equity Association & SAG- AFTRA eligible.
