about ben

Ben Jian-Lin Del Vecchio is a Chinese American writer/director/poet from New England.

His short script, “COMFORT” was a winner of Hillman Grad’s Rising Voices Initiative and premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival. He is a 2022 Sundance Development Lab Semi-finalist, and a 2022 Screencraft TV Pilot Competition semi-finalist. His short script “TAYO”, produced by Roman Coppola’s The Director’s Bureau, is in post-production.

He wrote/directed two short films for CalAsian Chamber of Commerce in response to #StopAsainHate -- a narrative “News For Home //家书”, and a documentary “#AAPISTRONG.” Both were shot with an all-AAPI crew, and are being shown in classrooms and workshops across California.


Ben is drawn to lost histories (cultural, familial, emotional); long drives and empty roads; Pepe’s Pizza (the original in New Haven, CT); the break of day, the fall of autumn; and meals with friends & family.
