Andrew Rossi is an American filmmaker. In 2011 he directed Page One: Inside the New York Times which was nominated for two News & Documentary Emmys and a 2011 Critics' Choice Award for Best Documentary. The film was co-distributed by Magnolia Pictures and Participant Media and grossed over $1 million at the domestic box office. His work has appeared on the History Channel, Sundance Channel, MTV Networks and HBO, including Le Cirque: A Table in Heaven which premiered on HBO in 2008.
In 2013 Rossi was one of the first directors to be commissioned by CNN Films to develop feature-length documentaries for theatrical and television distribution by CNN, including his next film about the transformation of higher education.
The film, Ivory Tower, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and was theatrically distributed in 2014 by Samuel Goldwyn Films and Participant Media. After airing on CNN, the film was nominated for a News & Documentary Emmy for outstanding business and economic reporting.
In 2015 Rossi produced Thought Crimes, an HBO documentary about the case of the Cannibal Cop that examines the First Amendment implications of policing communication in fantasy forums online.
Rossi graduated magna cum laude from Yale College where he served as the editor in chief of the Yale Literary Magazine. In 1998 he graduated from Harvard Law School, where he was an editor of the Harvard Journal of Law & Technology. After two years as an associate in mergers and acquisitions at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher and Flom LLP in New York, Rossi went on to pursue a career as a filmmaker.
Often Rossi’s films have to do with something that has been an issue in his life. He makes his movies to find out an answer, or many answers to the broad issue that the movie is focused on. Each film let’s the subjects do all of the talking and storytelling. He simply just is there to film and then whatever happens, happens (Boltin). His style has not changed much since he began making films just a little over ten years ago.
