Jill Narciso, Writer/Director
Award-winning writer/director of horror Jill Narciso is tougher than she looks.
She's helped free an innocent man from death row, used Jiu Jitsu moves at a nightclub, and spent most of the money she earned in college on speeding tickets.
Jill now gets her thrills riding roller coasters, playing poker tournaments, and visiting haunted places.
Besides working on her next creative project, Jill prepares state, federal, and private grants for top researchers, making good use of both sides of her brain. She also volunteers for Women of Color Unite.
Jill's short horror film, Stall, about a woman who gets stuck in a haunted bathroom, has had local, national and international screenings, including Boyish Media and Film Festival Flix, with distribution on Roku and Apple TV. Her latest film, Dolls, about an old doll who gets jealous of a new doll, won the Juror's Choice award at the Women of Color Filmmaker's 2021 Fall Challenge.
Jill has also participated in FilmNorth's Pilot Lab: Inclusive & Socially Conscious Filmmaking, the Women of Color Filmmaker's Lab, and Women of Color Unite's #Startwith8Hollywood mentor program.
Jill is the weird one in her writing group who likes to question which weapon causes the most blood in a victim, and whose scripts are often read while the sun is out.
As a director, she loves including as many women of color in front of and behind the camera to not only change Hollywood, but to inspire those still afraid to live out their dreams.
