With his latest feature film, "Unflinching Triumph", Mark Decena continues to embrace the digital paradigm in both production and distribution. Shot entirely without film or tape, Unflinching Triumph was highlighted by the Wall Street Journal as a new media "Top 5 What-to-watch".
Mark's first feature film, "Dopamine", premiered at the 2003 Sundance Film Festival's Dramatic Competition, winning the first Alfred P. Sloan Prize. Dopamine went on to close the San Francisco International Film Festival, and was picked up for theatrical distribution by the Sundance Channel's Film Series.
Decena was then selected for Fox Television's New Voices Program to develop a work place drama pilot, and secured a deal with 20th Century Fox, to write the script, attached as a Co-Executive Producer.
His latest short film, "The Light" is in a current festival run that includes the San Francisco International and Riverrun. His two previous short films, "One of Those Days" and "A Fly by Shooting" were accepted at Sundance, Toronto, Mill Valley, Gen Art, as well as other domestic and international film festivals. His 24-second film, "Dogs" was selected by Converse to run on national television, and was named a "Best Spot" by Adweek.
