Drew denny director queer habits

A 2022 Sundance Fellow and MacArthur grantee, Drew Denny directs narrative, documentary and commercials. Harper’s Bazaar called her one woman show turned Academy Award nominated podcast Asking For It “a Fleabag fix in a post-Fleabag world,” and Marta Kaufman’s shingle OK Goodnight is producing a narrative television series based on her documentary Queer Habits—following drag queen nuns who save a rural homophobic community from ruin.

Her first feature won Best Feature, Best First Feature and Best Cinematography in its 50-festival run, earning her a spot in The Advocate’s “40 Under 40” list, where she was named “an auteur to watch.” Her most recent narrative film Momster, starring Amanda Plummer and Brianna Hildebrand, premiered in Competition at the Tribeca Film Festival where it was selected for their debut Pride program and called “Tarantino and Nicolas Refn’s queer feminist love child.”

In over a dozen documentaries, she has secured unprecedented access to subjects as diverse as drag queen nuns in California, abortion clinics in Texas, climate change refugees in the Maldives, NASA scientists in Greenland and sex changing fish in the Pacific Ocean.
