McMillionElaine McMillion is an award-winning documentary storyteller, visual journalist and one of Filmmaker Magazine’s 25 New Faces of Independent Film.

Her most recent project, Hollow, communicates the issues of rural America through the eyes, voices and ideas of southern West Virginians. Hollow is funded by Kickstarter, Tribeca Film Institute’s New Media Grant and the West Virginia Humanities Council. It is supported by Documentary Educational Resources and the West Virginia Filmmakers Guild.

In 2013, Elaine was chosen a fellow for the Future of Storytelling and presented Hollow at the New York Film Festival, IFP Conference, The DocYard, Camden International Film Festival, UFVA Conference, StoryCode NYC, West Virginia International Film Festival, Create WV, Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Open Documentary Lab, Harvard University’s Berkman Center, the Museum of Moving Image and at 10 universities, libraries and high schools throughout the Appalachian region.

In November 2013, Hollow was selected for the DocLab Showcase at the International Documentary Festival of Amsterdam. Hollow was chosen as one of the top 3, out of 15 projects featured in The DocLab.

Elaine earned a B.S. from West Virginia University in Journalism and an M.F.A. in Visual and Media Arts from Emerson College.
