Between Floors is a 2009 American independent drama film that was produced and directed by Jen White as her directorial debut.[1] The film was edited from hour-long, structured improvisations, shot in working elevators. Each scene plays out in a single shot, with the only editing being from scene to scene.[2]


Between Floors focuses on five stuck elevators, each containing people inside them. As time passes, the people in each elevator deal with the isolation and containment in various ways.
