Karlee Boon_headshot.jpg


Karlee is a Portland-based filmmaker dedicated to carving out an inclusive space for women and queer individuals within the indie film world. Her artistic style is self-described as a fusion of 'retro aesthetics with a modern sensibility,' reflecting Karlee’s deep appreciation for the 1980s, alternative rock and feminist horror.


With a keen eye for storytelling, Karlee focuses on narratives that delve into the complexities of womanhood, queerness, and growing up – often through a distinctly female lens. Since her entry to filmmaking in 2017, Karlee has produced a diverse range of projects from music videos to narrative shorts and, most recently, feature films. Her works have screened at festivals across the United States, including Bend Film Fest, Tacoma Film Fest and Dances with Films NYCShe is also skilled in the world of film crowdfunding, having raised over $65,000 via campaigns on Seed & Spark since 2022. 

In 2023, Karlee completed her debut short, the coming-of-age horror film NIGHT SHIFT. The film premiered at Portland Horror in June 2023 where it received the “Devil’s Discord” award for best original score and sound mixing. She produced Jacy Mair's debut feature film Trash Baby in July 2023, which is currently in post-production and set to hit festivals in 2024.
