Samantha L. Roppola

She / They
Screening Committee Associate

Sam was born and raised in Brooklyn and that’s where they plan to stay. Being a filmmaker/scriptwriter in NYC is exciting as there’s never a lack of new stories and ideas. Through a wondrous series of events, Sam landed an internship at Queens World and worked their way up to Screening Committee Associate and literally couldn’t be happier. Diverse stories being told is an important element of Queens World and extremely important to Sam who feels that inclusion and representation should be a top priority in the film industry. Sam’s goal is to create films that change the world for everyone.
