Justina Walford is a critically acclaimed writer, producer, director, and performer of various types of storytelling on screen, stage, and print.
Currently the Founder and Director of the Women Texas Film Festival, Walford was formerly the Artistic Director of Split Id Staged Performances in Hollywood. During that time, she produced a dozen full-length productions and countless one-night shows, many of which were her original work. Her popular storytelling event “Memoirs of an Almost Geisha” was noted for showcasing Asian-American women and their stories of identity. Walford was praised by both the LA Weekly and Backstage West for her works and is a proud recipient of the Women in Theater Red Carpet Award.
In 2010, Justina left Los Angeles for New York and began creating movies with her husband John Wildman, including co-writing and producing the horror thriller, THE LADIES OF THE HOUSE, shot in Dallas and available on VOD. The film received descriptions of “an instant classic” (Dread Central), “potential cult classic” (Awards Circuit), and “a 21st Century cult classic” (Lucky Girl Media) among other critical praise.
A past board member for Women in Theatre Los Angeles, Sunday Assembly NYC, and Women in Film Dallas, Walford has built a reputation for bringing people together in three major cities (Los Angeles, New York City, Dallas), and is dedicated to using that talent to promote and show the range of stories women tell across all media.
