About Francis

Francis DiClemente lives in Syracuse, New York, and works as a video producer/editor at Syracuse University. He is the author of five poetry collections, most recently Dreaming of Lemon Trees: Selected Poems (Finishing Line Press, 2019).

He is the co-producer/director of the documentary The Real Bedford Falls: It's a Wonderful Life. The film examines the connections between the town of Seneca Falls, New York, and Bedford Fall, the setting of the classic movie It's a Wonderful Life. The documentary aired in December 2020 on Thirteen/WNET, the PBS station in New York City.

His full-length stage play Beyond the Glass, inspired by the Edward Hopper painting Nighthawks, was produced by a regional theater in Las Vegas, Nevada, in 2017.

His experimental short film Black Box, which uses the power of music and dance to explore emotions, was screened in June 2013 at the NewFilmmakers New York Screening Series.
