Neal Mulani

From the suburbs outside of Boston, Neal Mulani is a rising writer-director with a proclivity for autobiographical narratives about the queer experience. Raised by a father from Mumbai and a mother from Boston, Neal spent his childhood at the crossroad of two cultures and turned to film to articulate his experiences. Neal’s introduction to storytelling began at an early age with theater, instilling in him a fundamental appreciation for character, story and improvisation. His work explores shame, self-perception, masculinity & parenthood as they relate to the queer experience. A recent graduate of the Film & TV Production program at USC, Neal has worked for companies such as Cinetic Media, Lionsgate, and Plan B Entertainment, and currently works as an assistant to the Chairman of Universal. His first film, FISH TANK, premiered in competition at IFFBoston before completing an international festival run. His second short, FROM THE TOP, had its world premiere this summer at Palm Springs International ShortFest.
