BIO

Daniele Sestito is a director, writer, and cinematographer based in Boston, MA. As the son of two immigrants, he has always been obsessed with culture and perspective. Through film, he's found a way to share unique perspectives, in addition to his own.

His journey in filmmaking began in elementary school when he made short films with his friends, and it excelled throughout high school when he began to receive recognition for his work. Since then, he’s shot several short films, music videos, and a web-series as a DP, written many shorts and a feature, and his work as a director has been screened at numerous film festivals. Along the way, he's worked with companies such as Forbes, Cinematography Database, and Windy Films.

What drives Daniele is his passion for storytelling. Taking a precise approach to each and every frame, sound, and emotion, he aspires to make films that leave a strong impact on their audience.

He currently attends Emerson College in pursuit of his BFA in Film Production.
