New England indie filmmaker Jay Craven has made seven feature films, five documentaries and an Emmy-winning regional TV comedy series for public television. His films include Northern Borders (2013 – w/ Bruce Dern, Genevieve Bujold, and Seamus Davey-Fitzpatrick), The Year That Trembled (2002 – w/ Fred Willard, Marin Hinkle, Martin Mull) and his current picture, now in post-production, Peter and John which Craven shot this spring on Nantucket through his Movies from Marlboro program, where 20 professionals collaborate with 30 students from multiple colleges through a “semester away” at Marlboro
College. Peter and John stars Jacqueline Bisset, Christian Couslon (The Hours, Harry Potter: Chamber of Secrets), Emmy-winner Gordon Clapp (NYPD Blue, Glengarry Glen Ross), Shane Patrick-Kearns (Blue Collar Boys), and Diane Guerrero (Orange is the New Black). The picture will tour extensively on the Cape and Islands during the summer of 2015.

Craven’s awards and recognitions include the Producers Guild of America’s 1995 NOVA Award for Most Promising Motion Picture Producer of the Year, the Vermont Governor’s Award for Excellence in the Arts, and selection to the American Film Institute’s first-ever AFI:Project 20/20, as one of 18 U.S. and international filmmakers to travel the world to screen and discuss their work. Festivals and special screenings include Sundance, South By Southwest, Lincoln Center, The Smithsonian, Cinemateca Nacional de Venezuela, Cinematheque Francaise, Boston Museum of Fine Arts and The Constitutional Court of Johannesburg.

Four of Craven’s films have played The Woods Hole Film Festival — and he will screen his pictures Where the Rivers Flow North (1994 – w/ Rip Torn, Tantoo Cardinal, Michael J. Fox) and Disappearances (2007 – w/ Kris Kristofferson, Genevieve Bujold, Gary Farmer, Charlie McDermott) as part of his residency at this year’s Woods Hole Film Festival.
