Kirby Dick

Kirby Dick is an Academy Award nominated documentary film director.

His most recent release, This Film Is Not Yet Rated, is a breakthrough investigation of the highly secretive MPAA film ratings system. The film opened to great critical acclaim and recently compelled the MPAA to make long overdue changes in its ratings system.

Dick's prior film, Twist of Faith, is the powerful story of a man confronting the trauma of his past sexual abuse by a Catholic priest. Produced for HBO, Twist of Faith received a 2004 Academy Award nomination for Best Documentary Feature.

Dick's other films include, Derrida, a complex portrait of the world-renowned French philosopher Jacques Derrida, which won the Golden Gate Award at the San Francisco Film Festival, and the internationally acclaimed Sick: The Life & Death of Bob Flanagan, Supermasochist, which won the Special Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival and the Grand Prize at the Los Angeles Film Festival.
