Hey, I'm Reilly!

Los Angeles, California

Reilly Dowd is a graduate of Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service, where she focused her studies on investigative journalism and international politics. She has worked at SnagFilms (indieWIRE), CNN, ABC News, Al Jazeera America, The Fiscal Times as well as for former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Obama White House Office of Presidential Correspondence.


Reilly has spent the last three years directing and producing her first feature documentary, DREAMS OF DARAA. In bringing this film to life, she was a fellow in the 2016 Studios Program of the Halcyon Arts Lab in Washington, D.C. At the intersection of art and social impact, this nine-month fellowship supports emerging artists with the bold ideas of how art and creativity can be forces for social change. Reilly is currently a fellow in the Fledgling Engagement Lab, a highly selective program which supports projects that are focused on issues affecting vulnerable populations that are poised for action. During the one-year lab, she will work alongside a handful of other social issue documentary film teams to design and implement a social impact campaign focused on Syrian refugee women and children. 


Reilly currently lives in Los Angeles, where she is pursuing her graduate degree in the prestigious Peter Stark Producing Program at the University of Southern California's School of Cinematic Arts.
