San Francisco, CA, USA
Andy Bydalek is a San Francisco-based narrative filmmaker whose works have played in festivals across the U.S. and internationally. Inspired by auteurs, Andy typically writes, produces, directs and edits his own projects to create wholly unique visions. His award-winning short Skinnyfat (an edgy comedy about male body image) enjoyed multiple sold-out screenings in San Francisco and a worldwide festival run, before going onto become a top-selling DVD with national distributor TLA Video. The quirky web promo videos he created for Folsom Street Fair amassed nearly 100K views just weeks after their debut. And his current pilot script advanced to the final round of both the 2016 and 2017 Sundance Episodic Story Lab applications. With a particular focus on queer identity and relationship dynamics, Andy combines psychological insight, offbeat humor and compelling visuals to produce distinctive films that entertain and provoke discussion.
