Janeann Dill

Janeann Dill's films have screened widely in international film festivals, on public television, and in theatrical and museum environments. Her art work has been exhibited throughout Europe, South Africa, the Middle East and the USA; and her published works have been translated into Spanish, Korean, and Arabic.

Dill's films have been awarded numerous grants, notably, the Ahmanson Foundation, the James Irvine Foundation, and the Annenberg Foundation's Independent Media Grant. Her fine art has received numerous awards and Artist Residencies such as with the American Center In Paris and the National Endowment for the Arts (Artist-In-the-Schools).

Dr. Dill is presently working towards the completion of an historically pertinent non-fiction feature film, biography, and interactive application to position the pioneering work of the abstract animation artist and Early California Modernist, Jules Engel, within an art historical time line, Visualizing American Art History: Experimental Animation and Its Mentor, Jules Engel (1909-2003).

"Philosophically, I am an interdisciplinary artist keenly interested in experimental thinking as the fine art of all disciplines. Especially, my creative intelligence focuses on the in-between spaces that traverse disciplinary boundaries. This point of view is pervasive in my personal art making and underscores the mission for the institute I founded in 2008 to encourage innovative research, praxis, and critical studies in the fine and cinematic arts, the Institute for Interdisciplinary Art and Creative Intelligence (ThinkTank)" -- Janeann Dill
