Maureen Foley’s debut feature film, HOME BEFORE DARK, was named Best American Independent Film at the Hamptons International Film Festival, winning the Grand Jury Prize. Called “literate, low-key and quietly powerful,” it was acclaimed in Variety, the New York Times, the Boston Globe and numerous other media outlets. In the US, it was exhibited theatrically and has aired on Showtime, Lifetime, and PBS. Its television rights were licensed to over forty countries.

AMERICAN WAKE, Maureen’s second feature film, was previewed at the 2004 Galway Film Fleadh and had its world premiere at the 2004 Democratic National Convention.  It was chosen by WNET/Thirteen, the flagship New York PBS station, as the launch film for “Reel 13,” a  broadcast series on independent film.

Maureen also wrote and directed, for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, the Hatch Gold Medal-winning corporate documentary, “For The Cure” and four public service announcements.  The commercials were underwritten by the National Football League, and the spots aired nationally during Super Bowl Week.
