Winner of seven film festival awards for her feature films TRUTH HALL and DOG PARK as well as her short film, SUNRISE, Jade Jenise Dixon is a writer/director on the rise.
It all started with Jade’s first feature film as writer/director of the feature film, TRUTH HALL. Once she stepped behind the camera to helm this passion project, Jade never looked back. The film won five film festival awards and was an official selection of several festivals including American Black Film Festival, UrbanWorld and San Diego Black Film Festival. Ultimately, TRUTH HALL aired on the BET and Bounce TV networks in heavy rotation and received distribution from Image Entertainment/RLJ Entertainment.
Now Jade is embarking on her most ambitious project to date. It is a feature film entitled, Peony Park, which chronicles her own true life story of a young black girl growing up in a small town with big city dreams. Jade both wrote the feature-length script and will direct.
Jade is also the recipient of New York University’s “Presidential Service Award” for Outstanding service for directing productions for Black History month and chartering buses for students to attend the March on Washington to fight HIV/ AIDS.
In an effort to teach other diverse filmmakers how to get their projects off the ground, Jade completed a five-city worksop called “The Business of Acting and Filmmaking.”www.jadejenisedixon.com
