Rain Bennett is a two time Emmy-nominated filmmaker with over a decade of experience, predominantly in non-fiction film and television. He directed and produced his first feature length documentary in true indie fashion by traveling the world with only a backpack and a Canon DSLR camera. That film, Raise Up: The World is Our Gym won “Best of the Fest” at the Hip Hop Film Festival and received global distribution through Red Bull Media House. Bennett has screened the film on three different continents and shared the story of making the film in Breaking Muscle and Men's Health Magazine.
He’s produced work for Travel Channel, Sportsman’s Channel, and Redbull TV, and focuses on highlighting stories of subcultures rooted in health, history, sports, and social issues. Based out of NYC and NC, Bennett writes and directs both narrative and documentary film projects - he's currently working on a narrative feature inspired by his Huffington Post article about being in an interracial relationship.
