ABBI O' NEILL - DIRECTOR

A graduate of Columbia University, Abbi O’Neill started her career as a playwright. She transitioned to the film industry when her original screenplay, Rob Roy, was acquired by Disney.

As a writer-director, O’Neill’s short film “Dating In LA,” was an official selection of the BBC Short Film Festival. It won a Kodak prize for best short film on PBS. O’Neill’s comedy feature, “Surviving in LA,” was slated for distribution by Universal, and now is beginning a festival run.

But Abbi is most excited to start work on the Passion for Dance project.
