Heather Cassano is a documentary filmmaker and the founder of Spin One Films. Her films are reminiscent of the direct cinema movement, adopting a patient invested approach with her subjects. Heather blends this observational style with deeply personal narratives, striving to tell authentic stories through her personal experiences.

In 2018, Heather premiered her first feature-length documentary The Limits of My World to a packed cinema at the Independent Film Festival Boston. The film went on to screen at numerous festivals across the United States and internationally, winning three Best Documentary awards and a Jury Prize. 

Heather is now hard at work on her second feature-length documentary The Fate of Human Beings. The project was recently awarded a pre-production grant from the LEF Foundation Moving Image Fund. 

When she's not making films Heather teaches documentary production and is the Shorts Program Director for Salem Film Fest. She is also an active member of the Non-Fiction Cartel.

Heather was recently awarded the Emerging Documentarian Award from her alma mater Elon University.
