Since then, Timoner has created award-winning films and series such as Join Us (2007), Cool It (2010), BRAND: A Second Coming (2015), Jungletown (2017), Coming Clean (2020) and Mapplethorpe, a scripted film she also wrote and produced starring Matt Smith. Her latest film Last Flight Home (2021 Mountainfilm Commitment Grant Winner), about her father, premiered at Sundance and Telluride before opening theatrically and getting shortlisted for the 95th Oscars. Timoner is the director of The New Americans: Gaming a Revolution (Mountainfilm 2023). She recently won the prestigious Visionary Award for Documentary Excellence at DOC NYC and is an active member of the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences, the DGA, the PGA, the WGA, the IDA, Film Independent, Women in Film and Film Fatales.
