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 queer-driven narratives, Kelly’s work plays with nostalgia, voyeurism and the projections we put out into the world, capturing the subtle human intimacies that make stories compelling.


Recurring themes she enjoys exploring include the performative behaviour of sexuality, fear of inadequacy, existentialism and the absurd. Kelly’s work has been featured on CanalPlay, Amazon Prime, Bell FibeTv1 and Smokebomb Entertainment’s KindaTv, and has screened at festivals including the Marseille Web Fest, Bilbao Web Fest and the Diversity in Cannes: Short Film & Web Series Showcase.
