The Roberts Sisters

Marlee and Karlee Roberts, known collectively as the Roberts Sisters, direct, produce, and write for film and television. Their critically-acclaimed debut feature film, Little Miss Perfect, had its Los Angeles premiere at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood and New York City advanced screening at the Director's Guild of America. The film has garnered multiple awards including “Best Screenplay”, “Best Actress" and the “Grand Jury Prize” at festivals nationwide and was invited to screen in the Soho House Cinema Program. It is set for release in European theaters in 2018. 

The Roberts Sisters focus on telling empowering stories about underrepresented groups, often with strong yet vulnerable female protagonists. Their work has been showcased at the Museum of Tolerance NY & LA and they’ve spoken on various panels on filmmaking, including the Annapolis International Film Festival’s Young Hollywood and the 30Under30‘s Women in Film panel in conjunction with the United Nations. Karlee broke the record as the youngest graduate in Columbia University's history. Marlee is an adjunct advanced directing professor at the Los Angeles Film School. The sisters have interviewed and appeared in Indiewire, Huffington PostFrance 24 TVFox News, among others. They are supporters of the following organizations: Alliance of Women Directors, Women in Film, NY Women in Film and Television, and Film Independent.
