BIO: Jonas Carpignano is an Italian-American filmmaker currently based in New York City and Rome, Italy. While raised and educated between New York City and Woodstock, he spent long periods of time in Italy where his family has long being involved in the film industry and where he began his career working as an assistant director. It was there that he met the world renowned director Spike Lee, worked on the set of his Miracle at St. Anna, and was subsequently involved in many of his projects.
In 2009 Jonas enrolled in NYU's graduate film program to study writing and directing. Since then he has made several short films, including: Resurrection Man, starring Tony-Award winning actor Roger Robinson, and Bayou Black, starring Michael K Williams (The Wire) both of which have screened in numerous prestigious film festivals, including WFF.
Recently, Jonas was awarded the Martin Scorsese Young Filmmaker Scholarship Award, and was one of only six international filmmakers invited to participate in the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival Talent Lab.
