John Dilley - Producer

John Dilley's first short film, "Little Failures", premiered at Sundance 2003 where it was an Official Selection. It was also an Official Selection at France's Clermont-Ferrand Short Film Festival, which has been heralded as one of the most important short film festivals in the world. The film went on to screen at the LA Film Festival, and the STARZ Denver Film Festival, among others. In 2006, it was featured in a program of work by emerging filmmakers at the Cinémathèque Française in Paris.

John recently completed his eagerly anticipated second film, "How to be Popular", which is based on a thought-provoking New York Times Magazine article. The short film will have its festival premiere later this year.

John was born and raised in Oakland, California. He is a graduate of San Francisco State University's Film School, where he received the Distinguished Undergraduate Award, in 2002.

John is currently a manager at San Francisco's Film Arts Foundation, one of the country's most venerable organizations for supporting independent filmmakers. Though he has a background in experimental film and video, John has demonstrated a talent in creating narrative work with "Little Failures" and "How to be Popular".
