Quincy Rose is an award winning, New York-based, American filmmaker, born and raised in Los Angeles. As the first person in his family not to be born in New York - a truth still too upsetting for Quincy to accept – from an early age, he would speak with a phony, New York accent, telling anyone who would listen that he was actually from NYC. Undoubtedly, this was the first clue he was destined to be in show business.
Son of the late, venerated, comedy writer, Mickey Rose (Take the Money and Run, Bananas), Quincy’s earliest memories include wandering the halls of The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, and visiting various film sets, where he was struck by the magic bug and knew he would make a career in entertainment and cinema.
In 2012, after honing his craft, writing and directing several short films, and helming Untreated, a slow burn, comedy web series, Quincy’s debut feature film, Miles to Go, premiered at the Hollywood Film Festival. After doing the festival circuit, it was released in 2015. IndieWIRE called Miles to Go, “One of the 12 indie-films to watch on VOD in May 2015,” and The Hollywood Reporter said, “If Woody Allen and Albert Brooks had a baby, this film would be it.”
Friends Effing Friends Effing Friends, Quincy’s second feature film, had its world premiere at the 2016 Cinequest Film Festival, where it opened to rave reviews. The San Francisco Chronicle called it, “Sexually frank... a more serious romantic comedy,” continuing, “The lessons Rose learned from the towering influences in his life, his father and godfather, are only in how he approaches humor. His style is his own in this tale...” Since then it has gone on to play at the 2016 Manhattan Film Festival where it was awarded "Best Feature Romantic Drama" by the festival's jury. After closing the inaugural year for the 2016 Film Invasion L.A. Film Festival, FEFEF was released on VOD in the US and Canada via Gravitas Ventures, and is awaiting its foreign release dates.
Quincy's third feature film, The Narcissists, was shot entirely on the streets of New York City, in October 2016. It has since premiered at the 2017 Indy Film Fest, at the celebrated Indianapolis Museum of Art; was awarded Finalist at the 2017 BLOW-UP International Arthouse Film Festival in Chicago; and will make its NYC Premiere as part of the 2018 NewFilmmakers NY film series on January 31, 2018.
Some additional credits include: Melinda and Melinda, written and directed by Woody Allen; Accepted, directed by Steve Pink; and The Quincy Rose Show, a pilot which he co- created/wrote, working alongside Nicholas Brendon, Jack McGee and Lee Garlington.
Quincy loves cinema, is an avid reader and a disciplined writer, extremely dedicated to his craft. He works in all forms, from stand-up comedy to feature length scripts, and is most passionate about directing the films that he writes.
