Jon Dunham - Director/Cinematographer
Jon Dunham is an award winning filmmaker and a 26 time marathon finisher. The fusion of both these passions is reflected in his Spirit of the Marathon films.
Premiering at the 2007 Chicago International Film Festival, Spirit of the Marathon won the coveted Audience Award. It was subsequently released in more than 400 cinemas across the United States, where it grossed over $1 Million in two days on its way to becoming one of the year’s most successful theatrically released documentary films. The critically acclaimed production, which has become a cult classic among runners, was followed by Spirit of the Marathon II in 2013.
BOSTON is the filmmaker’s third film on the subject and marks the first time in the legendary race’s history that the complete story has been told in a feature length film.
As a cinematographer, Dunham has lensed a wide range of documentaries. He has traveled extensively filming on every continent and lives in Italy.
