AZAZEL JACOBS (Writer/Director) most recently directed the episode "Symphony Or Red Tape" for season 3 of Amazon's Golden Globe winning series Mozart In The Jungle. Before this, he directed two seasons of the acclaimed SKY/HBO show, Doll & Em (2014-15), in addition to serving as a writer and producer.

In 2012, Cinema Scope magazine cited Azazel as one of the 50 Best Directors Under 50. His film Terri, written by renowned novelist Patrick deWitt (The Sisters Brothers) and starring John C. Reilly amongst an ensemble cast, premiered in competition at Sundance 2011 and in competition internationally at Locarno & the BFI London Film Festival's "Film On The Square." In addition to receiving the Youth Jury Award at Locarno, TERRI garnered both Gotham and Spirit Nominations.

Azazel's award winning film Momma's Man quickly became one of the most lauded films of the year after premiering at Sundance 2008. It landed on many "best of" lists (including Salon, Time Out NY, the New York Post, Artforum, and Entertainment Weekly), and upon its domestic release by Kino International, Manohla Dargis declared it in the New York Times to be "independent film defined."

Son of avant-garde filmmaker Ken Jacobs, Azazel was raised in New York's lower Manhattan surrounded by important and innovative artists. He received his Bachelor's in film from SUNY Purchase and his Master's from the American Film Institute, where he returned to teach a course on personal filmmaking. Azazel is also a creative advisor at the Sundance Directors Labs.

Other notable credits include the experimental piece, Nobody Needs To Know, which premiered in competition at the Rotterdam Film Festival 2003, and the micro-budget feature, The Goodtimeskid (2005), co written/starring fellow director Gerardo Naranjo, which has gone on to have a cult following.
