Lynn Dow was born and raised in Harlem, New York. She became interested in filmmaking at an early age and is a graduate of Columbia University in New York City. After graduating, she worked on Wall Street before leaving to pursue her true passion, filmmaking.
She has produced five short films and written and directed three of them. Her awards include a Best Screenplay and Audience award in the Chelsea Film Festival, Short Script in the StoryMode International Script Awards, sixth place in the American Gem Literary Festival, a screenplay winner in the Colorado International Film Festival and numerous official selections around the country.
Shortly after her grandmother's passing, Lynn started taking Amtrak to South Carolina, there she would craft scripts inspired by her grandmother's birthplace. She is set to direct her first feature film, which she also wrote.
Lynn's stories are of families in turmoil, set in communities that highlight their conflict and the unfailing romance of place and time.
