Madeleine Sims-Fewer and Dusty Mancinelli

Madeleine and Dusty met at the 2015 TIFF Talent Lab and experienced an instant convergence of minds, quickly joining forces as a filmmaking duo. Highly focused on a naturalistic performance style and visual aesthetic, their films explore gender politics, the selfishness of human nature, and abuse of power.

Their first collaboration together was the short film Slap Happy, which screened at BFI London Film Festival, VIFF and Slamdance, among others. Their next short, Woman in Stall, won the Jury Award for Narrative Student Short at the Austin Film Festival and the Narrative Shorts Grand Jury Prize at Slamdance.

Their latest short, Chubby had its world premiere at the Telluride Film Festival, won the Silver Dragon award for best director at the Krakow Film Festival and received an Honourable Mention for Outstanding Acting at Slamdance.

They are currently in post on their first feature, Violation.
