Daniel Freeman

Daniel Freeman is an independent filmmaker and experimental music composer. He blends fiction and documentary approaches while following scrappy characters as they attempt to find healing through art and human connection. He was a SFFILM FilmHouse resident in 2019 and 2020, where he directed, wrote, shot and edited his debut feature film TEDDY, OUT OF TUNE. The film screened at the Mill Valley, Bushwick, and Maryland Film Festivals, among others. His follow up short film, IF YOU HUM AT THE RIGHT FREQUENCY, premiered at the San Francisco International Film Festival and later screened at The Roxie Theater during the Bay Area Media Maker Summit. Outside of his own projects, Daniel works as a documentary editor, composer, and youth filmmaking mentor. In 2023, he was awarded a Civic Arts grant by the city of Berkeley to create a documentary film (HOME FREQUENCIES) in partnership with Dorothy Day House – a non-profit providing shelter, meals, and social services to the homeless community. In 2024, Daniels film work will be supported by a Civic Corps Initiative grant from the California Arts Council and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.
