Producer, Executive Producer, Development

Jill Bennett is an award-winning Los Angeles producer/writer/actor dedicated to creating opportunities for underrepresented filmmakers.

Her viral hit We’re Getting Nowhere, regarded by the press as “the video blog that started it all” for LGBTQ new media, led to a development deal with Viacom and a string of roles in television and film. In addition to serving on the Screen Actor’s Guild LGBTQ National Board, she has spoken on LGBTQ media issues in over two dozen cities worldwide, including on the mainstages at San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Munich Gay Pride.

Her producing experience ranges from charity events to live specials, theatre, radio, new media, and film. She has produced three award-winning micro-budget projects that played in the international film festival circuit and went on to acquire worldwide distribution.

Jill’s comedy series Second Shot won picture of the year at London’s LFest. She won two Audience Choice Awards at Logo's NewNowNext Awards, and three Curve Magazine Awards for her two-season ensemble comedy We Have to Stop Now.
Her most recent feature, Under the Influencer, is due to hit the film festival circuit in 2024.

She is currently the Program Director for Fair Play Films, a cost-effective production and distribution initiative that specializes in creating quality content in the 350K-500K budget range.
