Sharee Silerio

Field Producer

Born in St. Louis, MO, Sharee is an award-winning writer and filmmaker who explores coming-of-age, self- discovery, and real-life stories through short documentaries and narratives.

Her film and television credits include projects on Netflix, Oxygen, Comedy Central, MTV, PBS, YouTube, and Prime Video. She is also a proud Firelight Media Groundwork Regional Lab fellow as well as a graduate of Continuity STL’s inaugural media training program.

Her first crew-produced, crowd-funded documentary, a short titled Black Girl, Bleu, was born from her personal challenges with mental health after the unexpected passing of her favorite uncle. It was completed in 2020 and has won multiple film festival awards, from Outstanding Special Programming (The Micheaux Film Festival) to Best Mental Health Promotion (Believe Psychology Film Festival), and an Audience Choice Award for Best Documentary Short (St. Louis Filmmakers Showcase).

From documentaries to digital series and narrative shorts, Sharee’s mission is to use intimate and authentic storytelling to explore the truth, magic, and beauty of being human. Her dream is to continue telling stories that move audiences to confront biases, cultivate empathy, and encourage vulnerability.

When she’s not making movies, you can find her reading a book, trying a new tea spot, or traveling the world to learn more about herself and others.
