Sydney MaHan, Filmmaker and Editor

Hi! My name is Sydney MaHan and I am a filmmaker and editor based out of Northern Virginia. A native of the DMV area, I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree from the College of William & Mary in 2016 with a double major in Government and Film and Media Studies. I have an MFA from American University in Film and Electronic Media with a concentration in documentary filmmaking as of May 2021.

My most recent projects include working with Smithsonian Gardens on videos for their HABITAT (2020), Her Story (2021), and Orchid (2022) exhibits, as well as my thesis film Cloverdale (2021).

As a storyteller, I love learning about other places and having the opportunity to share other people's unique perspectives. I always strive to captivate, inform and connect my audience to the world around them and I can't wait to connect with you!
