Dianne Bellino makes short films of all kinds.  Her last short film, “The Itching,” a collaboration with animator Adam Davies, premiered at Sundance 2016 where Dianne was awarded the Debra Hill Film Grant by Women in Film LA, given to a filmmaker “whose work represents a singular vision and ability to think beyond the normal conventions of filmmaking.”  “The Itching” went on to screen at over 60 film festivals worldwide, winning 12 awards.  Dianne’s work is available on Netflix and Fandor, and through Vimeo Staff Picks, Short of the Week, NoBudge, the Journal of Short Film, the Bureau of Creative Works, Indie Street, and Drag City.  Dianne is the recipient of grants from the New York State Council on the Arts and the Boomerang Fund for the Arts, and artist residencies at the MacDowell Colony, the Ucross Foundation, and Yaddo.  Prior to making her own films, Dianne worked in the film/television industry (notably as assistant to director Harmony Korine on julien donkey-boy) and created cover artwork for indie rock bands (with photographs published in Interview, Dazed, New Musical Express).  Currently Dianne teaches filmmaking and is the Assistant Dean of the School of Art at Pratt Institute.
