A.V. Rockwell is an award-winning commercial, film and television director from New York City. Hailed as a “rising indie filmmaker” by Entertainment Weekly, her distinctive voice has been celebrated for slyly addressing issues of race, family, identity, and systematic oppression.
Rockwell studied filmmaking at NYU Tisch School of the Arts where she was awarded full scholarship as a Dean’s Fellow. She’s received additional fellowships from Tribeca Film Institute, the John S. Guggenheim Foundation, and the Sundance Institute.
Fox Searchlight acquired her short film Feathers ahead of its premiere at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival. Most recently, Rockwell was selected to participate in the 2019 Sundance Screenwriter’s and Director’s Labs.
