Jaclyn Gramigna

I am a director who makes richly sound designed films that use humor to push boundaries and social consciousness. My short film INFALLIBLE (17 min) a dark fairy-tale, won the Visionary Award at the Visions Film Festival (2011) and I have since directed more than 20 short films, music videos and webisodes. 

Notably, I directed the psychedelic music video for JUNGLY (2020) by Aish Divine, which was featured in Rolling Stone and scored over 200K views in the first 24 hours on YouTube. I was also one of six directors selected to helm an episode of Pitch Her Productions first episodic lab, RUN-INS and my surreal drama, EXIT INTERVIEW (8 min), screened at both the Art of Brooklyn Film Festival and the Orlando Film Festival (2017). More recently, I directed SEVEN FISHES (9 min), a funny drama set on Christmas Eve about mental illness in an Italian-American family, which has racked up 22 official selections, 5 nominations, and 4 awards on the 2021/2022 festival circuit. In 2018 I was a fellow in NYWIFT's From Script to Preproduction Lab with my debut feature film, STEEPED, which is now in development. In 2013 I was highlighted as an Emerging Filmmaker to Watch in Miramax's Blog and additionally, was the keynote speaker at the 2016 Visions Film Festival & Conference.

To make ends meet, I direct and produce branded and editorial content for companies like, Instagram, Bustle, Katie Couric Media, Delta, Genesis, Walmart and Spotify and recently launched a music-video-focused production company, Make it Heavy Productions.
