Julie Pacino Career
Born to one of the greatest Hollywood stars of all time, Al Pacino, Julie Marie was fascinated by her father’s profession during early childhood. But, she never wanted to pursue an acting career like her father, instead, she always wanted to become a director.

“I was always raised with perspective, and my mom always kept me in check and made sure that I never felt entitled or that I deserved anything because of something my father did.”
As of 2020, Julie has directed around half a dozen projects. Moreover, she also has some producer and writer credits under her belt.
Her first project as a director was the 2009 short Abracadabra which she wrote as well. She screened the short film at the Cannes Film Festival in 2010. Some of her notable works include her work as a producer in the 2013 film Billy Bates and the 2017 short movie Shifting Past.
In 2020, Pacino-directed short film, Nowhere to Go was released whereas another short-movie, Harmony in Gold is in post-production as of now.
