SANDY K BOONE, Director / Producer, began making films in Austin in the 1980s with her late husband, filmmaker David Boone, whose Texas cult classic INVASION OF THE ALUMINUM PEOPLE was presented by director Jonathan Demme at the Collective for Living Cinema in 1981 in New York. Three decades later, Boone produced a restoration of the film as part of JONATHAN DEMME: MADE IN TEXAS – SIX FILMS FROM AUSTIN, which premiered at SXSW in 2015. In recent years she has co-founded several Austin based film companies with a shared mission to encourage local indie filmmakers, foster creative talent, and perpetuate a sense of community through filmmaking. She served as associate producer on RICHARD LINKLATER - DREAM IS DESTINY and executive producer on films such as BLAZE, TOWER, THE HONOR FARM, and BODIES OF WATER. She now makes her directorial debut with the feature documentary, J.R. "BOB" DOBBS AND THE CHURCH OF THE SUBGENIUS, a look inside the Church of the SubGenius, of which her late husband was an early disciple.
