Todd Looby

Executive Director of BendFilm

Todd has led the BendFilm organization since 2014. In that time the organization’s budget tripled, it has acquired a daily-operating cinema, the Tin Pan Theater, and was named “Top 25 Coolest Festivals in the World” in 2019. Todd began his professional career as a business manager for Chicago’s largest general construction firm. While working in the construction business, he taught himself filmmaking and eventually made the leap to full-time filmmaking in 2008. Todd’s second narrative feature, “LEFTY,” screened at festivals across the country and was named in “The Top 10 Movies of 2009…” by the “Chicago Tribune’s Metromix.” His follow-up, “Son of None”—a narrative short shot in Liberia—won the Special Jury Award at Slamdance 2011 and won Best Short at the Boston Film Festival. Todd’s last narrative feature, “Be Good,” stars established filmmakers and actors Amy Seimetz and Joe Swanberg and was called, “Well acted, crafted and observed” by “Variety.”
