Get In Touch

Eleonore Dailly is a young filmmaker, who left a successful, legal career to pursue her dream of fostering change through narrative films and documentary projects with a strong social message.  Her credits include “Dirt! The Movie”, a feature length award-winning film about the life beneath our feet, which premiered at Sundance in 2009, and “Chicas: Sean Discretas”, a feature length documentary that follows three courageous streetwalkers who fight for their rights as women in poverty-stricken Argentina.  She is currently in production on a film about the life and art of famed Cuban-American artist, Jorge Pardo, and in pre-production on “Mouton Village”, a broad comedy about clashing cultures.  In 2014, Eleonore produced “Swelter”, an action/thriller starring Lenni James, Alfred Molina, Jean-Claude Van Damme, and Catalina Sandino Moreno.

She has trained in both the independent and the studio realm, including Dreamworks and for Dan Jinks and Bruce Cohen’s production company at Paramount Pictures.  Previously, Eleonore practiced international civil litigation and human rights law in New York City and worked as a public policy advocate in Argentina, Kenya and Uganda.

In 2007, she was awarded the prestigious Debra Hill Fellowship for promising, young female filmmakers for her work on feature film development. That accolade came on the heels of Eleonore’s intense training at the University of Southern California’s Peter Stark Producer Program and a law degree from Columbia Law School.
