About Us

Eighty-Watt Cinema, a Limited Liability Company, was founded in 2002 by longtime collaborators Joshua Dilworth and Nicholas White. Located in New York City, Eighty-Watt Cinema produces narrative shorts and features, documentaries, and educational films.

Before it was incorporated in the state of Delaware in 2002, Eighty-Watt was best known as a student organization at Haverford College in Haverford, Pennsylvania, where it served Joshua and Nicholas as a vehicle for an array of creative projects.

Eighty-Watt’s name was inspired by Joshua and Nicholas’ first collaboration, a production of Oscar Wilde’s Salome, for which an elaborate web of wires and light bulbs was horizontally suspended from the ceiling of a converted blackbox theater.

Eighty-Watt Cinema is itself an expression of Joshua and Nicholas’ firm commitment to film and filmmaking. They do, however, maintain an active interest in theater and comedy, and plan to continue their efforts in those arenas under the Eighty-Watt moniker.
