Regina Pigsley

About the writer & director

Regina Pigsley is a Bay Area-born, Los Angeles-based writer and director. She holds a degree in film at UC Berkeley, where she was the first female and BIPOC president of the Berkeley chapter of Delta Kappa Alpha, the professional cinema fraternity, leading the fraternity to win five national awards. She specializes in narrative filmmaking and music videos, and has experience with a diverse array of genres, from action to musicals to science fiction. 

Regina’s film credits include 13 Reasons Why (2019), Clickbait (2020), and You Can’t Say No (2018), and she has worked on commercial projects for brands such as Verizon, Toyota, Salesforce, Shutterfly, Bed Bath and Beyond, and more. She currently works as a coordinating producer at Los Angeles-based production and live stream company Fortress Entertainment. In 2019, she ran the marketing campaign for the documentary The Distant Barking of Dogs, which became one of fifteen films shortlisted for the Oscars. Her short film “Face Value” (2020) was recognized with three festival awards, including Best Director at the Sweden Short Film Awards. Regina hopes to continue to tell stories that empower, uplift, and challenge the norm.

Regina hopes “The Phoenix” will be an inspiration to young women to find and embrace their own individual superpowers, and use them to fight their way to a better life.
