(December 13, 1962 - living) U.S.A.
Born in Albion, New York; after attending Temple University and NYU's Film School, Jim Fall earned a film scholarship from The Pennsylvania Governor's School for the Arts. Fall marked his feature film directorial debut in 1999 with Trick (starring Tori Spelling, Christian Campbell, and JP Pitoc), which went on to become Fine Line's highest grossing film of the year. Fall also directed the award-winning films He Touched Me and Love is Deaf, Dumb and Blind.
As a television director Fall helmed his first pilot, Damaged Goods, directed an episode of Grosse Point, and has recently been hired by Disney/ABC to direct the remake of Footloose. He also serves as resident director for the Vortex Theatre.
Currently, Fall will be directing the independent feature Pants on Fire starring Tori Spelling and is developing The Long Hair Depression, for Martin Chase Productions and Edmonds Entertainment.
"Why I wanted to make the movie [Trick] is that I'm gay, and I wanted to see a story that was just a romantic story about two guys," says Fall. "There's no am-I-gay-or-am-I-not-gay issues, or am I HIV-positive this or that? That's just sort of how I live my life, even though I'm 36 and the movie's about twenty-somethings."
