Alex McFry - Director's Reel


Born and raised in White Plains, Alabama with no theatre department in sight, Alex McFry has spent the last fifteen years doing what he does best--wrangling people to tell stories that otherwise wouldn't get to be told. As a queer person from the South, he has lots and lots of stories to choose from...

Alex currently works in commercial production by day and as a director of narrative, queer-focused content by night. He's created over thirty films, most recently the pilot for "queerbnb," a series that he created with his directing partner Alex Engel. The two met through the graduate network of their alma mater, FSU's College of Motion Picture Arts.

In 2019, Alex was the recipient of one of two of the first Colin Higgins Ambassador Awards, granting him a scholarship to attend the 72nd Festival de Cannes. While there, one of his queer films, HEADS UP (2018) was chosen to be in the Pavilion's LGBTQ Emerging Filmmakers showcase.

Alex currently lives in Los Angeles, California, and plans to continue telling stories of those underrepresented in entertainment. For inquiries (or just to say hello) email him at
