About Stephanie Castillo


Stephanie is an EMMY Award-winning documentary filmmaker with PBS credentials, and she is creating her 10th documentary with NIGHT BIRD SONG: THE THOMAS CHAPIN STORY.

Her documentaries have focused on biographies, social and cultural histories, and forays into subjects outside her usual interests, such as opera and cockfighters in America. As a former newspaper journalist, her storytelling is compelling and well-researched. She has written, directed and produced nine documentaries, several in partnership with others.

Her film partners are in Honolulu, Los Angeles, Washington DC, Dallas, Arizona, and on the Hawaiian island of Kauai where she is based. She is a consultant to other filmmakers and teaches digital storytelling to community college students.
