Fandor Festival Podcast Ep. 59: Ondi Timoner, Award-Winning Filmmaker & Director of “Coming Clean”

The team sits down with Ondi Timoner, award-winning non-fiction filmmaker & director of “Coming Clean”.


Ondi Timoner is known to be one of the greatest talents in non-fiction filmmaking. She often takes on the stories of visionaries fighting against all odds with a gripping and unique narrative style. She has the rare distinction of winning the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival twice – for her documentaries DIG! (2004) and WE LIVE IN PUBLIC (2009). Both films were acquired by MoMA NY for its permanent collection.

In 2020, she premiered her newest feature documentary, COMING CLEAN, which uncovers the genesis and potential solutions to the opioid epidemic through the eyes of political leaders and recovering addicts working together on the front lines. The film has picked up many awards on a robust virtual festival tour and will be released in 2022.

Ondi Timoner is a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, the DGA, the PGA, the International Documentary Association, Film Fatales, and Women in Film.
