- NEW YORK
Director Foley Ellis Ibidapo has joined the roster of The Collective @ LAIR.
Ibidapo is a multi-award winning, Nigerian-Jamaican-American director with a cinematic style that he’s applied to a body of work which includes spots, short films and documentaries. A producer, writer, strategist and director, he has worked on all sides of production. The up-and-coming helmer started his advertising career in content shops that have given him a holistic view of his clients’ needs, and he has since grown to write, produce and direct.
His work has been screened at the Rapport Festival, The Roxbury International Film Festival, San Francisco Black Film Festival, and Women Media Arts and Film Festival. In addition, Ibidapo has received Telly and SABRE Awards, was selected to pitch his short film Viva Valet to Create the Writers Room and earned a slot in SHOOT’s 2020 New Directors Showcase. He made the SHOOT Showcase cut largely on the strength of his short film, Lucy.
