About William

William Dickerson graduated from The College of The Holy Cross with a Bachelor’s Degree in English and received his Master of Fine Arts in Directing from The American Film Institute. His debut feature film "Detour," which he wrote and directed, was released through Gravitas Ventures and Warner Brothers Digital Distribution and hailed as an “Underground Hit” by The Village Voice, an “emotional and psychological roller-coaster ride” by The Examiner, and nothing short of “authentic” by The New York Times. He has written and directed commercial content for Fox Atomic, Walden Media, Mob Scene Productions and Little, Brown and Company. He self-released his metafictional satire, "The Mirror," which opened YoFi Fest’s inaugural film festival in 2013. He recently completed his third feature film, "Don’t Look Back," for MarVista Entertainment.

His award-winning work has been recognized by film festivals across the country. His AFI Thesis Film, "Shadowbox," won Best Short at the Shockfest Film Festival in Hollywood in 2008, and his scripts have been optioned and developed by major production companies.

His book, "No Alternative," was declared, “a sympathetic coming-of-age story deeply embedded in ‘90s music” by Kirkus Reviews. His second book, “DETOUR: Hollywood: How To Direct a Microbudget Film (or any film, for that matter),” is available now. He currently serves on AFI’s Alumni Executive Board and is a Faculty Member at the New York Film Academy. He lives in Los Angeles, California.
