Olympia Stone

Olympia Stone is an award-winning independent producer of documentary films about art and artists.  In April 2015, her documentary Curious Worlds: The Art & Imagination of David Beck, a portrait of a largely unknown artistic genius, premiered at the prestigious Full Frame Documentary Film Festival in Durham, NC and is currently being screened across the country and internationally. Olympia’s previous film, about the artist James Grashow, The Cardboard Bernini (2012), charts the artist's exhilarating quest to create an intricately detailed cardboard version of the Trevi fountain. The film was broadcast nationwide on PBS, it won Best Documentary at the Art of Brooklyn Film Festival 2013, and was an official selection at Sebastopol, Santa Fe and 18 other festivals. Her first independent film, The Collector: Allan Stone’s Life in Art (2007) chronicles the obsessive collecting of her father, a New York art world gallerist whose habits and prescient scouting shaped his life and the lives of many in his artfully cluttered orbit.

“It's an addiction ... the art experience for me is like a narcotic ... and I don't get it from everything, but I keep looking for it”

— Allan Stone
