About City of Peace Films
About the Director
Award winning director, Dustin Marcellino, is a third generation entertainment industry progeny, tracing his roots back to his grandfather, legendary record producer Jerry Marcellino. Jerry produced such superstars as Michael Jackson, Diana Ross and the Supremes, Frankie Valli, Lionel Richie and the Commodores, Al Jarreau and Smokey Robinson, just to name a few.
Dustin’s father, Yochanan Marcellino, founded several successful record labels including Kerygma Records, Galilee of the Nations Music, and most recently, City of Peace Media and City of Peace Films. Yochanan also ran key divisions of several major record companies and managed the careers of Kerry Livgren (of Kansas), the writer of “Dust in the Wind”, Cindy Birdsong (of the Supremes), Kyle Henderson (of the Producers), and many other major label artists.
Dustin was born in Panorama City, California, but reared in the arms of multiple cultures, namely the culture and Land of Israel. Against all odds, Dustin became fluent in the Hebrew language, absorbing himself into culture and history of Israel. This experience would prove to shape his young life and set the tone for his artistic future. He now lives in Nashville, Tennessee, where he finds himself overflowing with vision, creativity and a passion to bring “redeeming value” through music, film and video.
A two time FuseTV/Sonic Bids “music video award winner”, Dustin Marcellino is now one of the top up-and-coming directors in the Nashville music and film scene for his work on numerous cutting edge music videos. He is quickly gaining recognition and respect in the film community for his unique directing skills and unorthodox shooting style.
“Movie making is inspiring to me. It is a powerful creative outlet to express myself to the world”. When asked about his work ethic, Dustin said, "Well, it's like Ringo Star said, “It Don't Come Easy” and that's the honest truth. It takes blood, sweat and tears, an attitude that will never quit. I learned that from my Dad. My goal in this life is to help bring ‘redeeming value’ to the world through film and the arts; to give people hope in this life", said Dustin Marcellino, Vice President of City of Peace Films.
