Joy E. Reed brings over a decade of experience in documentary as an associate editor (HOW TO DANCE IN OHIO; ERNIE & JOE) and animator (32 PILLS, MY SISTER'S SUICIDE; THE DOG DOC), and has been on the creative team of a number of films that have premiered at Sundance, including BUCK (Audience Award 2011), and most recently, THIS IS HOME (Audience award 2018). Joy is a principal of Oh, MY! Productions®, and their work has been broadcast on PBS, HBO, and other festivals worldwide.

Joy is drawn to character driven documentaries in which, by showing the day to day experiences of people that might otherwise be “othered,” connections may be drawn through skillful storytelling, and relatability with a wider world can be achieved.

Joy's feature directorial debut, LITTLE MISS WESTIE (Best Documentary OUTSHINE Miami, Special Jury Award BENDFILM), premiered at DocNYC 2018, and is available to view on PBS AMERICA REFRAMED. Their current project now in production, THE SUM OF OUR PARTS, has been accepted into Union Docs 2020 and IFP Week 2020.
