maker of film-like things

B. B. Araya is a filmmaker based in Austin, TX. Born and raised in Dallas, TX to Eritrean & Ethiopian parents, she started catching the feels from movies at an early age. 

She's interned for various film focused companies including Richard Linklater's Detour Filmproduction. 

Her film Mostly Time premiered at Babesfest during SXSW in 2016 at the Salvage Vanguard Theater. Michelle Obama was at a restaurant across the street at the time of the film's premiere and that's clearly a sign from the universe.
