Kelly Paoli is a Toronto based award winning director whose focus is telling stories through diverse gazes. With an affinity for poignant visual comedy and female driven narratives, Kelly’s work plays with nostalgia, voyeurism and the private/public projections we put out into the world, capturing the subtle human intimacies that make stories compelling.


Reoccurring themes she enjoys exploring include existentialism, fear of inadequacy, sexuality, national identity and the absurd. With a background in fiction, documentary and branded content, Kelly’s work has been featured on CanalPlay, Bell FibeTv1 and Smokebomb Entertainment’s KindaTv. She is currently in development for a project she likes to pitch as “gay ladies in space.”

Kelly is also a host for YouTube channel Top 10 Nerd.
