Director Biography - Dustin Cole Hayes

Dustin Cole Hayes grows his film and music career from the same DIY ethos. Spending the 2010's in an avalanche of tour movies, sketch comedy, and niche mini docs, Hayes culminated his film experience premiering his feature documentary "Aquatic Cathartic" (2018) at DC Environmental Film Festival. The 2020's finds Hayes reuniting with his old writing partner, Alex Crawford, curating LA's Sunday Night Salad variety show and wrapping their pseudo-soap-opera, "Library Card" (2023), while still maintaining an active music career with his band, Walter Etc.
