DIRECTOR | PRODUCER
Named one of the “25 New Faces of Independent Film” by Filmmaker Magazine, Morgan Jon Fox has become known for getting strong, authentic performances, and telling gritty regional southern queer stories. His early no-budget films made at 22years old, and 25 years old respectively, "Blue Citrus Hearts," and "OMG/HaHaHa" were film festival hits and gained international distribution. His documentary "This Is What Love In Action Looks Like" gained praise and national attention from CNN, Good Morning America, the New York Times and The Advocate for capturing the true story of a Memphis teen who was forced into a religious based “straight camp." The doc screened at over 40 festivals around the world and won the Derek Oyston CHE Film Award at the London LGBT Film Festival. His latest project, FERAL is an 8 Episode show he created for the new streaming platform DEKKOO about a close knit group of 20-something LGBT artists living in Memphis, TN. Described as “‘Weekend’ meets ‘Girls’(Huffington Post), Feral was praised as “an authentic queer drama”(out.com), “atmospheric and romantic.. heartbreaking” (indiewire), nominated for Best Web Series by Queerty. Fox also has over 15 years of experience as a Producer and an Assistant Director, working with A24 Films, Daniel Scheinert, MTV, Craig Brewer (Hustle & Flow), Tim Sutton (Dark Night, Sundance) and Justin Timberlake.
