P.J. Marcellino

Ontario

P.J. Marcellino is an award-winning Cape Verdean-Canadian Director and producer based in Toronto. Initially a journalist and photo-reporter, he later became a researcher and political analyst, working around the world before pivoting to filmmaking. His work is approached with thoughtful, assertive, and consequential storytelling, with a visual grammar halfway between the verité school of documentary and the experimental-arthouse influences of his early years. He often leans into topics like identity, memory, crises of humanity, and the affirmation of unheard voices. Marcellino is a graduate of Seneca College’s Documentary Filmmaking Institute in Toronto, a DGC and Canadian Academy member, a recipient of the Rigoberta Menchú Social Award, and a fellow of Geena Davis’ BFF Foundation and the Netflix-Banff Diversity of Voices Initiative.
