I'm Joey Dello Russo, a documentary filmmaker from Boston, MA. My belief is that documentaries should educate by offering perspectives in ways that effect compassion.
I hold a BFA in Film & Television Production from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. In 2010, I was awarded the Panavision New Filmmaker grant. Since then, my films have been played at over 25 festivals worldwide, including the 2016 Sundance Film Festival. My work has been featured in publications such as The New York Times, Variety, The Guardian, and VICE, culminating tens of millions of views.
I've made films on a variety of people, including the head of Scientology NYC, the co-founder of Facebook, and the USA's leading feminist pornographer. Recently, I edited with legendary filmmaker Werner Herzog on his living room couch.
