Hayley Kosan is an award-winning filmmaker from Phoenix living in New York City.

Graduating from Arizona State University with a degree in Film and Media Production, Hayley’s senior thesis film, The Understudy, won several national awards including Best Director, Best Cinematography at Columbia University National Undergraduate Festival, Best Ensemble at LA Comedy Fest and the Audience Choice award at Visions Film Festival & Conference.

In 2015 she became an associate producer for The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore, shooting and directing web and on-air sketches. That summer she also directed the short film, Mafia Dad which premiered at Big Apple Film Festival in 2016. 

She currently has two web series on IFC Comedy Crib (Horrible Insane Girl and The Place We Live) both of which she directed, shot and edited. 

Hayley would like you to know her favorite Meryl Streep film is A Cry in the Dark and strongly feels Meryl's performance is wildly overlooked, which she knows is insane to say but stands by it.
