Jill D’Agnenica is an award winning filmmaker and visual artist working in Los Angeles as a director and editor. A friendship with a fellow artist/filmmaker led Jill to her career in editorial, where she started in ultra-low budget films, before transitioning to work in television. She’s had the pleasure of editing drama series including How to Get Away with Murder, Lucifer, Stitchers, Pretty Little Liars (Freeform), Switched at Birth (Freeform), Undercovers (NBC), Hollywood Heights (Nickelodeon), Dirt (FX), and The Division (Lifetime). She likes to say editing is magic.

The Los Angeles Times called Life Inside Out, Jill's directorial debut, "a gentle, poignant drama whose heart and head are squarely in the right place" with "tender direction by Jill D'Agnenica." Life Inside Out premiered at the 2013 Heartland Film Festival where it won both the Crystal Heart Award for Narrative Feature and Best Premiere. It went on to be screened at 21 festivals, receiving 16 awards, including 5 Best Feature and 4 Audience Awards. After a limited theatrical run, Life Inside Out was released on DVD and VOD in 2015. 

Jill has worn the hats of director, editor and producer on music videos, PSAs, indie shorts and features. She enjoys opportunities to contribute as a guest lecturer, panelist, and mentor to fellow filmmakers and artists.

Jill holds a BA in history from UCLA and an MFA in Visual Art from Claremont Graduate University. She was a Director in the Disney | ABC Directing Program (2016-2018), which recruits experienced directors on the cusp of making the transition into episodic directing. She is a member Film Independent, Film Fatales, the Motion Picture Editors Guild and the Directors Guild of America.

Jill recently directed her first episode of television on Freeform’s Switched at Birth.
