Ondi Timoner has the rare distinction of being first to win twice the Grand Jury Prize in Documentary Film at the Sundance Film Festival for her features “Dig!” (2004) and “We Live in Public” (2009). Resulting from seven years and 2,500 hours of footage, “Dig!” focuses on the rivalry between bands, The Dandy Warhols and the Brian Jonestown Massacre. “We Live in Public” profiles internet pioneer Josh Harris and mines the increasing theme of the loss of privacy in the age of the Web. Both were acquired by the Museum of Modern Art, New York City, for their permanent collection.
In addition to envisioning, editing, and directing short and feature films, music videos, and commercials through her full-service production company Interloper Films, she is proactive in speaking about storytelling, technology, and art. Among her many projects related to these topics, she founded platform “A Total Disruption”about innovators and entrepreneurs who are taking advantage of technology’s utility and reach to help transform human lives. She hosts podcast “B.Y.O.D.: Bring Your Own Doc” about documentary filmmaking. Furthermore, she directed the opening film—starring Steven Spielberg, Barbra Streisand, Jay-Z, among other icons—for President Clinton’s birthday/fundraiser concert (2011) at the Hollywood Bowl. This film also starred the President himself.
