A born film nerd, Tess Ornstein was raised in Brooklyn by a mother who could best be described as a feminist powerhouse. From grades one through twelve, she attended Saint Ann’s School in Brooklyn Heights where she first discovered her interest in intersectional arts. After high school, Tess attended Hampshire College in western Massachusetts where she studied Arts and Social Change, with a focus in theater. Upon graduating Hampshire, Tess served as the 2015 NYC Fringe Festival’s youngest showrunner for her full-length play Cherubim. Following Fringe Festival, Tess redirected her efforts back to film and later, film publicity. This past year she was privileged to work for RJ Millard at Obscured Pictures, before accepting an offer at Magnolia Pictures/Magnet Releasing where she currently serves as Publicity Coordinator on such films as ‘I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO’, ‘XX’, ‘DETOUR’ and ‘MY SCIENTOLOGY MOVIE’.
