The groundbreaking director was best known for her films HumpdayYour Sister’s Sister (2011), Outside In (2017), and last year’s Sword of Trust. 
Humpday, which premiered in 2009 at the Sundance Film Festival, starred Joshua Leonard, Alycia Delmore, and Shelton’s frequent collaborator, Mark Duplass.
In a tribute on Instagram Saturday, Leonard called Shelton “one of the greatest forces of nature I’ve ever encountered a brilliant enthusiast to her core.”
Meanwhile, Duplass said her “infectious spirit” was unrivaled. “We lost our dear friend Lynn Shelton. We made so many things together. I wish we had made more. Her boundless creative energy and infectious spirit were unrivaled. She made me better. We butted heads, made up, laughed, pushed each other. Like family. What a deep loss,” Duplass tweeted.
