Candace Jade Lewis has had a profound interest in film since a very young age. Constantly dwelling inside her imagination, she found inspiration through film, using it as a gateway to express the worlds she could only otherwise view with closed eyes. But growing up in a family with very little income, she found herself using any medium she could to create her stories. Spending endless hours drawing comics and writing stories, the worlds within her head never stopped turning. It wasn’t until Candace was accepted into Dodge College of Film that her creative ambition met available resources. Her desire to share these worlds grew with her experience in film, and wanting others to understand her perception introduced her to the world of directing. Candace hopes that her film, The City of Lights, will bring inspiration to others, and provide a chance for many to get a glimpse of what she dreams.
