Chloe Caudillo is a Chicana writer, director, and producer who hails from the vast cornfields of DeKalb, IL. She grew up code-switching between her Mexican working-class family and American Catholic school peers and teachers. Though it felt like a curse at the time, it made her extremely perceptive of cultural and class differences.  A graduate of The Second City's Harold Ramis Film School, Chloe's passionate about using genre for social commentary. She creates stories about unconventional protagonists who are agents of change.  Her work contains elements of comedy, drama, horror, sci-fi, and surrealism. 


In 2023, Chloe was selected for the LALIFF Inclusion Fellowship, through which she wrote and directed the genre-bending short film, Development. It stars Haskiri Velazquez (Saved By The Bell, The Forty-Year-Old Version); Raquel McPeek Rodriguez (NCIS: Los Angeles);  Jeff Lorch (Our Flag Means Death), Leticia Castillo (Jessica Jones, When They See Us) and Sal Lopez (Full Metal Jacket, American Me).  Development screened at the 2023 Los Angeles Latino International Film Festival and was an Official Selection at the 2023 New York Latino Film Festival and the 2024 NewFilmmakers Los Angeles Festival. 


 Chloe's short film, Super Lupe, was an Official Selection at the Brownsville Latino Comics Expo Film Festival (2018, Audience Award), Clevelad Concotion Film Festival (2018, Festival Finalist), Latino Film Market (2018), Portland Film Festival (2018), Chicago International Genre Film Festival (2018), CineSol Film Festival (2018), and the Little México Film Festival (2018),


Professionally, Chloe has almost two decades of work experience in project and program management. She has also served as an Assistant Director on an independent feature (Cecily and Lydia at the Waypoint) and a comedic pilot (Betty's). In recent years, Chloe has dabbled in improv, sketch, and stop motion animation. 


Chloe's long-term goal is to write and direct TV and features.  In the meantime, you'll find her in production on independent passion projects.
