Jade Jenise Dixon

Writer/ Director/ Producer

 
 

Jade Jenise Dixon is a writer/director living in Los Angeles. She was born in Omaha, Nebraska, where she performed in local talent shows, plays and church events. She caught the directing bug in her teens and directed a rendition of the hit Broadway play For Colored Girls… before attending the University of Miami, where she was both a cheerleader for the football team and a passionate member of the UM acting conservatory, starring in and directing a production of The Scarlet Letter.

After transferring to NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, where she directed two further stage productions, Dixon moved to L.A. and wrote, produced and directed her first feature film, Truth Hall, which won several film festival awards and was in heavy rotation on the BET, Centric and Bounce TV Networks. She recently shot a pilot for a TV show of Truth Hall. Her second feature film as writer, producer, director, Dog Park, also recently won several awards and is now available on Cable On Demand, Amazon Prime, iTunes, GooglePlay and Vudu. Jade’s latest project, “Sunrise,” won a coveted screening spot at the Harmony Gold preview house in Hollywood as a finalist in the Collaboration Filmmakers Challenge. Jade is now submitting the project to film festivals.

Jade is a strong activist for underrepresented groups in film and television and is a member of both the Alliance of Women Directors and Film Fatales. Jade was recently named both curator and programmer for the TV pilots division of the DTLA Film Festival and is organizing a special panel in 2018 entitled: “Diversity, the new normal.”

As proprietor of Parker Street Productions, a company named after the street of her childhood home, Jade aims to tackle relevant issues in her projects such as social awareness, science, technology, gender parity, and civil rights.
