Eli & Lu Bevins

Twin sisters, Eli and Lu Bevins, were raised by their grandparents in West Philadelphia. Growing up in a house two generations removed, the sisters were able to draw from both modern and “back in the day” experiences which is visible in their work. From such starting grounds, Eli & Lu are capable of catering to diverse audiences of all age groups, while tackling variant genres.  The sisters began writing stories and poetry in elementary school and first discovered the art of screenwriting in the 11th grade in the  film club at Overbrook High. After putting on two stage plays in college, Eli & Lu started a web show based off their second stage play to simply have a recording of their work, which eventually lead the sister’s back to their filmmaking aspirations. Since, Eli & Lu has written and directed numerous short films, produced a multicultural supernatural thriller, created an 1 hr long documentary, written several full length screenplays, produced educational videos. Eli & Lu has also won numerous film awards including the 2014 First Place Elfenworks prize for their social justice film, “Systematic Living;” award presented by “Underground” actress, Jurnee Smollett-Bell.
