Cinester Films serves as a showcase for the work of Director/Producer B.C. Jones. All rights reserved.

B.C. Jones is an award winning filmmaker born and raised in Kentucky. His film education began at an early age in the aisles of his Father’s video store. While other kid’s heroes were cartoon characters and action figures, he was busy idolizing John Carpenter, David Lynch, Stanley Kubrick and Alfred Hitchcock. His earliest films were shot on super-8 and later created on VHS. From this early age, he absorbed the works of countless film auteurs from every era of cinema and began to discover his own aesthetic through observing the masters at work.

Since earning his degree in film at the Watkins College of Art and Design, B.C. Jones has directed and produced numerous shorts, commercials, music videos, and sketch comedy bits. Two of his short films have been accepted into numerous prestigious film festivals and even won awards. His work has been featured on Crave Online, 366 Weird Movies, and Ain’t it Cool News. He’s worked as a director, a producer, an editor, a first assistant director and a hired screenwriter. In 2005, He produced a music video for the band “Mindless Self Indulgence” which spent three months straight at the top of the myspace music video charts. B.C. Jones has also directed numerous sketches for the comedy duo Red State Update and their creative collaborations have collectively garnered millions of views on youtube.

His films often tackle unusual subject matter and are constructed in a style unique to his personal vision. A filmmaker obsessed with the macabre, the surreal and the absurd; the audacious works of B.C. Jones continue to push the art of cinema to new horizons.
