About me

A graduate of NYU film school, Phillip Montgomery has written and directed numerous critically acclaimed short films, commercials and music videos spanning both documentary and narrative genres. Among his most recent work, a highly praised documentary short film series that was part of P&G’s “Raising an Olympian” campaign. These films for the London Olympics helped earn him a place in SHOOT’s prestigious New Directors Showcase. And his film Today, a documentary short about a man who learns to find meaning in his life’s work even after a tragic accident, was honored with the Special Jury Prize at the Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF).
Montgomery also directed a documentary short for Stand Up To Cancer for the organization’s annual event last Fall, and a GE campaign for BBDO about the country’s veterans and GE’s work in the nonprofit sector. He made his feature film debut with #ReGENERATION, a documentary exploring the state of activism among today’s youth. Narrated by Academy Award-nominee Ryan Gosling, #ReGENERATION enjoyed a busy festival run and was released theatrically in May of 2012.


Montgomery discovered his passion for the arts in high school, where he received classical vocal training and performed in theater. But before graduating, he picked up a hi-8 video camera, started making short films and found his stride behind the lens as a director. He never looked back.
