Devin JANE Febbroriello is a North American film director + screenwriter that specializes in the creation of thought-provoking stories centered on women, complex relationship dramas, and humor. Evocative characters and contemplative multi-genre plots combine with traditional storytelling techniques to cultivate her deeply emotive works. Devin’s practice is informed by a deep-seated interest in how storytelling has the unique capacity to investigate the beliefs that shape our culture, relationships, and sense of self. Although her work is rooted in traditional cinema, she also explores new media and emerging technology.
Devin has created award-winning music videos and short films that have screened at Pitchfork, Filmfort, Venice VR Expanded, Bend Film Festival, Prague International Film Festival, Stereogum, Rolling Stone, and more. She is a vetted director listed on Free The Work, and a RACC Project Grant / Innovation Prize recipient 2020, as well as a Lucas Artist Fellowship Collaborator 2017-2020. Her pilot script for the episodic series "Blood is Thicker" was a finalist in Screencraft TV Pilot Script Competition and a Sundance Episodic Labs finalist. She received her Bachelor of Art in film from Emerson College, attended specialized cinema studies at FAMU (Czech Republic), and holds a Master of Fine Arts degree in screenwriting through the David Lynch School of Cinematic Arts at Maharishi University. Having the opportunity to learn directly from David Lynch and other mentors at the DLMFA has been a highlight of her educational career.
In 2021 Devin partnered with Desert Island Studios co-founders Joe Bowden and Ashley Song to support the development of a full-service production company in-house. She is currently the Head of Production at Desert Island Studios and leads both creative and operational production initiatives at the company.
Devin was born in the Northeast but currently lives in the Northwest with her husband. She is available for work worldwide and maintains a strong network of collaborators in New York City, Los Angeles, and Oregon.
