Lissette Feliciano, an award-winning filmmaker born and raised in San Francisco, CA, is the creative force behind the acclaimed debut feature film “Women is Losers.” Premiering at the 2021 SXSW Film Festival, the movie, starring Lorenza Izzo, Chrissie Fit, Bryan Craig, and Simu Liu, quickly became one of the festival’s highlights.

Feliciano’s journey in filmmaking took a significant leap with “Women is Losers,” a compelling narrative set in 1960s San Francisco. The film, inspired by real women and the Janis Joplin song of the same title, follows the story of Celina, a bright and talented Catholic schoolgirl navigating a difficult home life. After an indiscretion leads to devastating consequences, Celina faces the compounded obstacles of youth and solitude, striving to overcome the oppression of poverty and carve out a future that defies the norms of its time.

After playing at numerous festivals nationwide and garnering several Best Director and Best Narrative Feature awards, the film was acquired and is currently streaming on MAX.

As for Feliciano, her notable directorial achievements include being a Tribeca Film Institute AT&T Untold Stories grant recipient, an NYU Tisch alum and recognized as one of Shoot Magazine’s New Directors to watch for her viral US Navy x Wonder Woman campaign. She’s currently in pre-production on her second feature in addition to developing other projects that follow her philosophy in filmmaking — and that is to innovate, elevate, and entertain.
