Claire Chubbuck, the daughter of an internationally celebrated acting coach, Ivana Chubbuck, and award-winning director/producer, the late Lyndon Chubbuck, has started her own career in film. She’s a firm believer that the past, present, and future exist together.
Claire is the future of film – and she comes from a legacy of artists that have moved forward in the industry. Claire Chubbuck is an emerging female director taking the best from both of her parents and fuses it together to bring life to a new genre of film – “Cathartic Realism”.
Cathartic Realism allows artists to tell the story of their personal experience of emotional survival — written, filmed, and acted with the motivating factors of finding understanding, growth, and ultimately catharsis.
Claire creates films that help artists deal with their traumas with “Cathartic Realism”.
A take on the “true story” genre, allows artists to depict their truths—how they felt—and ultimately come out victorious. She works with actors to use the defining events in their lives to make art – both as a director and as a teacher at Ivana Chubbuck Studio, where Claire is the Vice President.
“Cathartic Realism is taking on storytelling through the artistic lens of empowerment through the Chubbuck Technique. It is taking the best of what both of my parents contributed to the industry”, said Claire Chubbuck.
After graduating from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts with honors (recipient of the Founders Award) and a BFA in Filmmaking in 2012, Claire went on to make multiple award-winning short films.
In 2020, “How I lost my virginity” won over 17 awards and was shown at several high-profile film festivals including Beverly Hills Film Festival, Chain Film Festival, Santa Monica International Film Festival, SF Indie Fest, Flickers’ Rhode Island International Film Festival, Marina del Rey Film Festival, among others. Claire personally won “Best Direction” at the Best Shorts Competition in addition to “Best First Time Director” at the Canadian Cinematography Awards, New York Cinematography Awards (NYCA), and Top Shorts Awards. The first theatrical showing of the short was at Marina del Rey Film Festival, where the short won the Audience Award for “Best Short”.
Claire currently has 2 short films in post-production, 2 short films in pre-production, and a feature film in development.
