Terrence F. Hayes

ACTivate Resident Filmmaker

Born and raised in South Boston. He could have easily spent his childhood playing hockey and stealing cars with his friends. Instead, he studied painting at the Museum of Fine Arts and filmmaking at Massachusetts College of Art and Design, finally landing out west to complete an MFA in cinematography at the American Film Institute. Terrence’s love of art and his unbreakable bond with his South Boston community inspire his honest and poignant stories — two of his feature scripts were finalists in the esteemed Nicholl Fellowship. Not only has Terrence directed numerous shorts, PSA’s and a feature, he is an accomplished Director of Photography/Camera Operator, lensing scores of independent films and television shows including Ghost Light, Manchester by the Sea and Knives Out. Terrence lives in South Boston with his son Hudson and aspires to tell stories that engage and move the world.
